Penguins will be a tough ticket

The Pittsburgh Penguins have renewed 99 percent of their season tickets for the 2008-09 season, it was announced today by team president David Morehouse.

Fans who are at the top of the Penguins’ season ticket waiting list now have the opportunity to purchase the limited number of season tickets that have become available.

“This is another tribute to the passion and loyalty of Pittsburgh Penguins fans and, especially, our season ticket holders,” Morehouse said. “It also gives us an opportunity to reward some of the fans who have been on our season ticket waiting list with the chance to buy Penguins season tickets. The waiting list is at more than 2,100 right now, and it is growing every week.”

In a rink that seats just under 17,000, the Penguins have 14,000 season tickets, making Pittsburgh one of the more difficult places to buy a ticket these days.

Compare this to before the lockout where they had to beg people to come to the arena. :)

Compare this before Sid The Kid saved the day (month, year, decade, hockey).

The Chicago Bulls sold all their seats as seasons during the heydays of Michael Jordan. They had a hard time selling seats once the boon ended. Ticket scarcity neglects to bring new and casual fans to the game, which are the next generation of season ticket holders.

Pittsburgh has proved time and again that they are a solid hockey market. As long as the (arguably) best player in the league is a Penguin...
