Pens Tickets don't come easy without Season Tickets

The Headline say's it all. 


I read an article weeks ago that said ticket sales for some games were capped at around 15,000 (Source, bottom of web page) so that atleast a few would be onsale to the general public Sept 10th.  But I was online within sixty seconds of individual game tickets going on sale only to find that tickets for every game I had targeted were unavailable (aka sold out?).  The only games where I could find a pair of tickets on sale via Ticket Master were random Monday night game against Ottawa or random Wednesday night game against Toronto (I live out of state now, so Thr,Fri,Sat,Sun games only for me)


Season Ticket Exchange:  I've seen some PensBurgh poster's talk about their season tickets.  The tickets available on season ticket exchange are pretty steep in price.  As of Sept 17th, the cheapest tickets for the opener are up for well over $300 each, some probably over a $1000 each.  Some weekend games, you can get a pair of tickets in the 200 level for $97.  The first thing that hit my mind, are those season ticket sellers making lots of profit there?  Maybe I should be in the ticket resale business ;-)  The second thing that ran through my mind, will the price for tickets go up or down when the game draws closer?  I also noticed that even season ticket exchange games in March are going for around $100 at the cheapest...


Reason it's difficulty for your average Joe to obtain Pens tickets?  Most likely the high demand for season tickets, right?  It seems the Pens front office is prioritizing season ticket holders over everything else.  I know some people who have been on the season ticket waiting list for atleast a year(some team owners wish they had a season ticket waiting list...) 


Anyone else know of the best way to obtain Pens tickets to a weekend game that may already be sold out?  Any better ticket buying options aside from season ticket resale on ticket master?  Are their any hidden tickets stashed away unsold that will be availble to non-season ticket holders, or are most of the games literally all sold out?

 

Good luck to all hunting tickets!  And Enjoy!!  to those who already scooped 'em up!
