Playoff Ticket Prices Sky High In Toronto

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

Nazem Kadri has already gotten the word out to friends and family who are looking to score some Toronto Maple Leafs playoff tickets: You’ll probably have to watch on television.

Even the players who will appear in Toronto’s first post-season run in nine years have limited access to the hottest tickets in town.

A technical glitch delayed the sale of the limited number of tickets the team made available Thursday for the first two games of the opening round. Seats in the lower bowl were priced as high as $800 apiece.

“It’s still going to be sold out regardless; that’s the good thing about Toronto,” said Kadri. “I mean I guess that’s what you’ve got to do to make some money.”

Season ticket holders have to purchase the entire playoff package in February, IIRC, if you think this round is expensive, wait until you see the prices for later rounds (if they make it that far).  They didn’t call Maple Leaf Gardens the Carlton Street Cashbox for no reason.
