I'm not worried about it. If I was able to get tickets to the SCF in 09 then this shouldn't be a problem. The only issue is that I have never heard of WC tickets actually going on sale in prior years. Then again, I never really cared either. I'll be going, no matter the cost, but it would be nice to have extra beer money.

FYI, Looks like there's an email/txt list you can join that will update with info.

Thanks Jedi. There is also the website they mentioned during the presser. The site was down when Chris Ilitch mentioned it, but it's up, sort of, now.

Just do like we do in Dallas and get louder than the Stars' fans when they try to start a chant.

I'm game for this. I'd definitely need two for me and my wife and possibly a third if it was available (my dad would get a huge kick out of it).

I have done things and promised things that none of you need to hear about to get ticket information.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

If you'd go to such lengths just for ticket information, I shudder to think of what you'd do to get the actual tickets... You might be my best bet for an extra pair then... :lol:

Definitely. I always yell RED there too. Good to know I'm not alone in doing so, we don't have much participation on that one yet.

This. I would definitely like to get in line for any tickets that our community scores. I would be in for 3 and would even throw in a little extra to show appreciation. Hopefully I can leverage my namesake to get tickets and/or autographs. In that case, I would offer those up.
I'm offended that you're offended.

I wish I could say that if I get tickets I'll be able to pass them on to you all. But I can think of 30 people I know that will easily take extra tickets of my hands.

Hopefully we can make this happen though.

Just talked to a lady in the ticketing office. She explained to me how the tickets will be sold.

1.) DRW and TML season ticket holders get first dibs.
2.) DRW and TML half-season ticket holders get second dibs.
3.) Then all remaining tickets will be sold via lottery through the NHL.

Granted she was trying to sell me a season ticket package for next season, it sounds like this is going to be how it happens.

I really wish they would make it easier for DRW fans to attend as it is our event, and not leave it up to luck. When they have it in TO they can snub wings fans, but not this year. Not fair.

That's what I always thought was stupid, I always saw contests on NHL.com where you could 'win' a 'chance' to 'buy' tickets. Some contest. FWIW, there will be some on stub hub for sure. How much they will be is anyone's guess. This year's WC you could buy tickets on SH for around $300, my sister-in-law was looking just to see.

If I lived anywhere near Detroit I would already have season tickets, or at least buy them to get access to WC tickets.

Nice to the the hosts, the UofM folks, getting some love from the NHL. If this scenario is the way it's going to take place, I believe there will be a lot of upset people on this forum.

Also, if this years WC is any indication, season ticket holders for both the Red Wings and Leafs will be forced to purchase tickets to all other events (alumni/OHL/AHL/etc). Which means that even if you didn't get tickets to the WC and just wanted to see the other events, availability will greatly decline.

Oh yeah I forgot that the seats won't be close to the ice. Damn. If the catapult doesn't work out maybe we can get plane to drop them.
