Looking to get inside the Madhouse on Madison for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final this Saturday night ? The cheapest standing room only ticket currently available on StubHub will set you back $369. Looking to catch an away game in Boston on Monday night? The cheapest seat in the house can be had for $425. That's why the following will make you laugh.
At a time when the NHL is more popular than at any other time since the 2004-05 canceled season the league's two Southern-most franchises can't even give tickets away. Need more evidence that the NHL needs to get the hell out of South Florida? Consider the following: the Florida Panthers are currently offering a limited number of season tickets for as low as $7/game. That's right, for a cool $300 hockey fans in the Sunshine State can catch all 41 home games at the BB&T Center. Kane County Cougar seasons tickets cost almost twice this much!
That's not all you get for $300. The current package also comes complete with free parking, a home red jersey, and 4 free concerts. When you consider that the Panthers have been moved to a division with four of the Original Six teams (Boston, Detroit, Montreal, and Toronto) along with Buffalo and Ottawa the team truly couldn't play in a more entertaining division. It seems only a matter of time before the Panthers eventually relocate themselves in the Great White North. In the meantime if you're living in South Florida scoop some of these tickets up, they are the best deal in professional sports.
