The Malik Report

I certainly can’t confirm this, but, via RedWingsFeed, Winging it in Motown reader Jaclyn_ posited a probable slate of Winter Classic ticket prices, as released to Wings season ticket-holders this week:
I’ve never posted here before, but I read this site all the time. I became a wings season ticket holder this year and I received information on the winter classic tickets today. I thought I would share some of the stuff, so everyone knew what to expect when they become available to the public. Tickets for the winter classic itself start at $89.00 then continue 129.00, 149.00, 189.00, 219.00, 249.00, and 279.00. Not including taxes or fees. You also have to buy one ticket to the great lakes invitational per winter classic ticket you buy, in order to complete your package. Those prices are 18.00, 28.00, and 38.00. The season ticket holder book says that overflow tickets will be made available to the public later this summer. And that the alumni showdown tickets will not be made available to anyone until later this summer. Just thought id share the info I could on classic.
The “regular person” prices are usually more expensive than the rates offered to season ticket-holders…And as expensive as these rates are, especially for seats half a frickin’ mile from the action, I thought that they’d be marked up even more than they’re listed as. Keep in mind that ticket prices for the Winter classic itself are determined by the NHL, not the Wings…
Update: Well this is incredibly discouraging. According to an email Josh Howard received from the Grand Rapids Griffins, there will be no public sale of Winter Classic tickets:
As we enter our beautiful summer months, we are looking forward to our 17th Season this year. We have some exciting events coming up this year including the Winter Classic Game between the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. There will be no public sale for this event and the Griffins are one of the only places you can purchase tickets to this historic event. Tickets will be made available to many of our ticket plan holders.
