I was going to find the KC thread that Monkey started, but I thought a new thread for the Pens was needed, especially after this news.Rendell says Penguins given best offer of any NHL team

This isnt a troll post, or something to upset the masses ...however:

If the Penguins win the Stanley Cup, I will stop watching hockey for a full year.

This is a 100% true story.

$4620 total. That's with 4 seats, though. They're in "B" section, but in the first row so we have the railing in front of us. We're just behind and a few feet to the right of the goal that the Pens score on in the 1st and 3rd, if it helps.

I take it prices are a lot higher in Toronto? What does a comparable ticket plan/seating arrangement cost there, in US dollars?My uncle used to have seats 3 rows behind the penalty box, before the Pens installed their higher-priced "blue" seats. Back when they were still a force in the mid-to-late 90's, those seats cost $75 each. If you extended the red half line, it would have split the 2 seats perfectly. I used to get chills just walking towards the seats :club:- btw, i'll actually be at the Toronto/Pens game tomorrow

Just to put my 2 cents in...I am not a Pens fan, however having the Rogers Centre Ice package I find myself watching the Pens games more than any other team...other than the Leafs of course...They are a fun team to watch...And I only have one Pen on my team and he isnt really an impact player..Brooks Orpik..I would love to be in Pittsburgh tomorrow to show them a few things..LEAFS 5 PENS 3Book it
I am a huge Leafs fan, I am not going to apologize for my love of the greatest team on earth.
GO LEAFS GO

I was especially impressed with the 2nd goal because he made something out of absolutely nothing with a bouncing puck. It's another Messier and Gretzky in the making.

it's not so much the price you see on the ticket as much as it's impossible to get the tickets in toronto. if you want seasons tickets you need $10,000 and that gets you onto the waiting list.when the Nucks were in town last week the cheapest seat that didn't require me to stand in front of obstruction cost nearly $200 each after tax and service fee.

Ugh. I love the Pens and all, but paying that much is out of the question. I guess we're just spoiled.

dude, you gotta stop talking out of your ass. I highly suggest you do some research instead of using your head and thinking you know something about hockey.Here's some actual facts. With the exception of last season the Maple Leafs have made the playoffs 6 consecutive years. They won a playoff series the last time they were in the playoffs.

I find it hard to believe that there isn't a long list of people interested in purchasing the Penguins. Seriously, Crosby, Malkin, Staal, Fleury, Whitney, etc... plus the other young guys like Letang almost ready to step in...handled properly, this team could be a goldmine.
