Wild Tickets

7 posts in this topic

I've never been to an NHL game and would like to change that. I was looking at Wild ticket prices online and see that lower level seating is pretty expensive, while upper level seating seemed more in range with my checkbook.

What's it like sitting in the upper level vs sitting in the lower level? Can you still see? What about sitting on the ends vs the middle?

How far in advance do I have to buy tickets, can you get tickets at the game?

I'm honestly lost on this subject, any info would help me alot.........thanks.

Not a bad seat in the house. Sitting on ends is pretty high up but if you like to see the plays develop it is great.

The bar rail area is great. In between upper and lower. Like someone else posted there is not a bad seat in the house. The live experience is awesome. Usually you can go on line and buy that day.

I split season tickets with another guy so I go to half the games with those tickets. They are great seats, first row, upper deck, between the red and blue line. I have sat almost everywhere in that place over the past few years. The action is a lot faster down low but there are times when you can’t see what’s going on. In my opinion, if you can get something in the lower level, between the blue lines, no closer than 13 rows up, than those are good seats. Otherwise I would go with the upper deck anywhere on the sides.

I think the best way to get tickets is from the scalpers. I go down all the time on nights that my friend has the tickets and buy them from the scalpers. I get great seats in the lower level for $20 each. A few weeks ago I was in the 16th row, as close as possible to the red line, for $20 each. Just remember your 7th grade Econ class – Supply and Demand! Go down and scope out the guys that are holding the most tickets. Go to the guy that is holding the most tickets at 7:00 and ask to see what seats he has. Don’t talk to any of them until 7:00! If one of them has seats your interested in, tell them that you already have some tickets at WILL CALL but they’re in the corner and you would buy his if he’s willing to let them go for $20 each. Keep an eye on what’s going on around you. If you don’t see anyone looking to buy tickets out there but you see a bunch of scalpers selling, you can offer him even less. Remember that it’s a game of chicken and who will cave in first. The scalpers only option is to take what you will give him or go home with nothing! Scalpers have all the power to charge whatever they want before the game starts, but if you wait until game time and the demand has dropped, all that power shifts to you.

You have to be willing to go watch the game at a bar in order to have the right attitude. The closest I have gotten to that was the last Sharks game. The scalper that had the seats I wanted told me I was crazy to think I could come down and get seats for $20. I told him that my offer was $20 each and that I was going to go stand by the door. For every minute I wait my offer goes down $5 per ticket, and then I’m going to go pick up my WILL CALL tickets. The guy ran over to me to take the offer within 30 seconds!

I was going to say something to the same effect about not sitting too far down. About 12-13 rows up is right...that way you can see the whole ice.

I've sat in places that offer views from different angles...it is interesting to sit in different places. Upper deck on the ends is interesting as you can see the rotation during line changes and on power plays...kind of fun to see that different view.

Up in the corners is not bad, because you can see the whole ice, but if you can get up a little bit between the blue lines you can't go wrong.

And the previous post is right...find a local neighborhood entrepreneur and you will get a hold of some good tickets.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
