Wild Tickets

Recommended Posts

B. Amish

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.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
