Buffalo has that "variable pricing" thing. Gold, Silver, Bronze and Value. The Leafs may suck... but the demand is huge so it's gold. Fla and Winnipeg are the only 'value'. Most are silver. The most expensive ticket at face value
is 185 for a gold game in the 200 club level. The cheapest is 29 bucks for a value 300 level nosebleed.
I think you are way off with your assessment of the Buffalo fans. This team hasn't had any real success in over a decade.... yet they still are near the top every year in attendance. They just had 10K fans at a practice, and have had huge numbers at practices all week. There are only like 10K individual tickets left for the season. My point is that if prices raised even without winning the Cup.... fans would still go. They would spend 2 arms and a leg if need be.
