Sold Out???

It's saying on the website that all 41 games tickets are sold out. That doesnt necessarily mean that every game is sold out does it? That would be pretty hard to imagine. Also it says season tickets are sold out as well. Are their corporate people buying up these tickets because there is no way that these tickets can all be gone otherwise. that includes season tickets, group tickets and so on.

I am sorry but are you new to the Montreal hockey scene? The only reason it took this long to sell out these games is because of the system. If we had admission there is no way it would have taken more then a hour to sell the place out for 41 games. easpecailly this year.

So I can't get any tickets unless I go to a scalper?

I wanted to fly from Winnipeg in December to see a couple games from December 18th-21. I just need singles. Previously, only a few weeks ago, I was led to believe that if I bought singles and didn't care how bad the seats were, I could get them at the box office when I arrived in Montreal. Is this not true?

I planned to buy them ahead of time, but with school, I never had time to get in. So, I should just cancel my trip? I am not willing to spend $300 on a single ticket to see them play Carolina, Buffalo or Philly. I originally planned to get one good $100 ticket and one ~$25 ticket... This seriously ruins this term. Seeing a Habs game has been a 17 year dream. I never felt like I could afford to get out there until this year.

You can get a single ticket from a scalper for less than the face value of the ticket if you wait until after the game has started to find a scalper. There will be scalpers still trying to sell off their remaining tickets at bargain prices.

You wont have any problems getting scalper tickets for under 100 dollars.Might not be the best seats in the house but there's not really any bad seats at the Bell.

Nooooo....

They really should make a sticky on how to get tickets during the season...anyway, here's how...

Ticket season holders can't always make it to the games so they make their tickets available. So, in the morning of a game you go to the "Réseau Admission" website http://www.admission.com/ . When you're in the Habs tickets section, keep searching or refreshing for tickets all morning. During weekdays, you'll always find some.

Will this still work with the new system now that they're not using admission.com?

Here are your options.

1. on the 15th of each month they sell 100 tickets to each game of the following month.. so on Nov 15 you have a chance but its slim.

2. they have a small amount of tickets on game day buts its really hard to get.. you need supper luck.

3. Ebay (for a single ticket it won't be too bad)

4. Stubhub or ticketliquidator or other website

5. Craigs list

6 Scalper.

wow even in edmonton it isnt that bad.

What do you mean? Montreal is almost 2/1/2 times bigger than Edmonton and we're only talking about the city's population itself, excluding suburbs.

There's a reason why every single Habs game has been officially sold out since like how many games now? 150 home games? That adds up to almost 4 full seasons.

People are a little hockey-crazy around here, that's for sure.

Thanks to everyone who responded with how I can get tickets. Looks like the trip is still on, but now I have to make sure I'm there for the Flyers game as it seems weekend games will be harder to get.

I'll be checking ebay, but if I get to Montreal and still don't have any tickets, how do you usually get tickets from people if I go to www.admission.com come? Do I simply post and agree to meet the people to pick up the ticket? Quick mobility won't be especially easy for me with just public transit at my side.

Will I have any problems with just using English at admission.com?

Thanks again!

His name is Joe??? I could have sworn it was Rob! ;):lol:

Whatever his name is, I'll consider it a last resort. Like I said, I only need singles, but I really don't want to have to wait until the game starts for the price to come down to something not too insane. I kinda wanted the whole experience of seeing them warm up, etc... I am willing to pay above face value, but when I say that, I mean I'm willing to pay $25 more only if I need to.

I haven't been to an NHL game since 1996... my poor Jets...

I wouldnt hold your breath sorry.

Maybe it would be easier to fly down to a nonehocky market, and watch all there games for free,

Kid you not, i heard that you get 2 free hockey tickets with a order of pizza in certain places :(

Drives me nuts

we had a LOT of people do that from the Canadian cities all the time in Chicago. A couple years ago there were some Flames fans that chartered a plane down to Chicago for a game.

You will not be seeing that as much anymore, though.

If you're able to, and are willing to pay the price, I say you definitely don't want to miss out on the pre-game festivities. The warmup, the whole intro, there's nothing like it.

I was going to start a new thread for this but I guess it could go here:

Does anyone know what the Habs' consecutive sellout streak is? I know they've sold out every game since the lockout, not sure about before that. Does anyone know if they have the longest active streak or what the record is?

I just did a quick search and found a link to HFBoards. Someone there says the record is the Avalance with 487 games in a row.

From another post:

"As of February 13, 2008 here are the top 5.

1. Minnesota Wild - 274 games

2. Vancouver Canucks -202 games

3. Toronto Maple Leafs - 183 games

4. Calgary Flames - 155 games

5. Montreal Canadiens - 127 games"

(Active Streak)
