NHL ticket Prices Decreasing

CNN/Money is reporting the Red Wings cut their average ticket price by more than 24%. That is news to me! from CNN/Money,
National Hockey League fans will have yet another reason to cheer when teams take the ice this season. In addition to the return of the sport after last year's lockout, the cost of a ticket is going down as well. The average price for an NHL ticket dropped 7.5 percent to $41.19, falling below 2002 levels, according to Team Marketing Report, a trade publication. Because no tickets were sold during the 2004-2005 season due to the labor dispute, prices were compared with 2003-2004. More than two-thirds of the NHL's 30 teams cut prices, some drastically. The Detroit Red Wings cut their average ticket price by nearly $14 to $43.13, a reduction of more than 24 percent. Other teams with big ticket-price cuts include the Dallas Stars (23.1 percent), the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (19.5 percent) and the New York Islanders (17.2 percent).
