When I went to my first hockey game, it was the Pittsburgh Penguins hosting the L.A. Kings, and I walked
up to the arena box office and paid $3.50 for my ticket.
Today you have to surf Stub Hub for hours and hours, and you are lucky to get out of there for less
than eighty bucks apiece.
That, in a nutshell, is what's wrong with the NHL these days.
Ticket inflation is affecting all sports, not just hockey.
