I’m writing this ten hours before puckdrop for the Canada/USA semi-final - should be an amazing night, right?  I can buy a $95 ticket online for face value on the Buffalo World Juniors website.  Why is this?  People have dropped $400-$500 in recent years at Canadian venues to scalpers or ticket brokers to get into such an affair, whether it’s the gold medal game or the semi-finals.  Are prices too high?  Is the border-crossing that much of a hassle?  People cross the Peace Bridge from Ontario to go to Target or Dick’s Sporting Goods.  Or 41 Sabres games!  You can’t tell me they won’t do it for an affordably-priced piece of hockey history.
