I've never been to MSG and don't ever plan to go the.
Between the drive to the city, parking and tickets, I'd rather spend the $150 somewhere having fun outside of the city.

$150? Even a single ticket of the worst seat at face value (resale is higher) will cost you $180, for an enjoyable seat in the 200ís youíre looking upwards of $300/ticket. No matter how much I love this team I refuse to be suckered unless its a meaningful playoff game.

Is it championship or bust?

In regards to going all in? No. If they had this mentality they would have had Kane (and Tarasenko) 3 weeks ago for a much higher price. In regards to being their only chance at a cup before their windows closes? Also no.

Why parting ways with Patrick Kane, a franchise legend, was the right move for the Blackhawks
https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nhl/why-parting-ways-with-patrick-kane-a-franchise-legend-was-the-right-move-for-the-blackhawks/ar-AA186ms3?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=62d335748bf94ea98c9b812412c8fc43&ei=10

"Kane off the roster definitely improves Chicago's chances of having the NHL's worst record and getting a higher percentage of landing the No. 1 pick -- and with it, potential generational star Connor Bedard. Bedard has taken the hockey world by storm over the past year. He has recorded a ridiculous 114 points (54 goals and 60 assists) in 45 games for the Regina Pats in the Western Hockey League this season."

Interesting on how the trade is graded. Also the "all in" comment.

My favorite "it is not my fault" coach!!!  :)

Flyers coach John Tortorella gets real after Rangers fans take over arena in OT loss
https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nhl/flyers-coach-john-tortorella-gets-real-after-rangers-fans-take-over-arena-in-ot-loss/ar-AA188VuF?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531&cvid=11e0ce5623d540aca0165e44fa7d921e&ei=29

I'm missing the "it is not my fault" reference.

Best of all though, some tickets to see the Broadway Blueshirts can be snatched up for as low as $75 before fees on Vivid Seats.

I've bought regular season tickets below $150 face. Even middle level.

Ticketmaster has a pair of seats in section 209 for the Columbus game (3/28) at $125 each including all fees.

Higher level seats even cheaper.

Ok, that makes my point even stronger.

I don't have enough money to spend on everything that I'd want to spend on before going to a Rangers game.
I can't justify the expense for the reward.

I was agreeing with you.

I was wrong - as I didnít realize face value changed drastically for each game. Though I will say 209 row 22 is probably the worst seat worth coming for, $125 face to watch a bottom feeder is very pricey. Lot more fun going to MSG Southwest to watch the Rangers play a rival and sit in lower level for $80-100 :)

The problem with Chicago is I would like to get to the game without being shot at. My second year I have not been to a game. So sad!!!

They see blood in the water.

Cue the I told you so from @Dan  :)

Told this to some Cubbies fans in AZ and they said never.
I laughed. They told us they would never change the Indians name when they killed the chief in 2019.

I've said since then that they're certainly going to come for Braves, Chiefs, and Hawks. Just a matter of time.
Once that is done the field will be clear for PETA to start campaigning in earnest to ditch all animal names.

At least we'll still have colors to root for.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
