    Average price on secondary market for #Isles home opener is $625.
    - “Cheapest” ticket ($317) is 2nd-highest of recent NHL arena openings
    - $625 average will likely be 3rd-highest reg season game in 21-22, after Kraken opener and Lundqvist Night. (data from @Ticket_IQ)

      I don't mean to be a downer, but in my opinion, this is largely a ticket broker driven price hike.

      I'm not saying there aren't plenty of Isles fans who want to be there Saturday, but I believe there are a lot of people out there trying to make money off an event, and not as worried about attending the actual game.

        No doubt this is a hot ticket, everyone knew it would be a hot ticket, and ticket brokers undoubtedly jumped all over this.

            This is good. Dobson needs a little kick in the ass of motivation to stay in the lineup now when Pulock comes back.

              I life those lines. Very optimistic.

              Not sure if Aho needs a couple of more games or if he's a career AHL guy. The last few games have been light on offense and that's not on Aho.

              Of course we still need a 2 way defenseman and that is obviously not Aho's game.

                Eventually Dobson needs to step up and become what we are lacking - a dman who can skate the puck out of the zone and run a power play. I was hoping it would be from the start of this season. But it wasn't. The sooner the better, we sorely need those qualities. Salo showed them in camp, I can't expect him to take on that load after 14 games in the AHL. But it sure would be helpful if he could take on at least some of that load.

                I am not feeling Aho as a full time player. That may not be fair as he has not played very much for 2 seasons now. But it is what it is, so far.

                      My gut see's it the same way on Aho. But I think we should give him a fair chance at proving himself.

                        Yes, we are BADLY in need of a puck moving dman.

                        Trotz: Robin Salo "is the guy based on what he's done there (Bridgeport)." Says Salo fills more of a puck-moving role that #Isles also got from Ryan Pulock (lower body). Said Thomas Hickey would fill more of a defensive role.

To see how hard everyone's been working on this place, it'll be really great to get everybody in here... and enjoy this all together."

                            If there was ever a guy to switch from defense to offense, it is Aho. He is not an NHL defenseman, so why not see what he can do at wing?
