Ticket renewals

The Red Wings mailed out their season-ticket renewals, today. Returning a 25 percent deposit on renewals by Aug. 4 will lock ticket prices in at last year's rates. In addition, 10 percent of the Red Wings' ticket prices will be lowered with a heavy concentration of those being seats that were formerly $44.

The price cuts are part of an effort to draw in new fans to Joe Louis Arena.

"A lot of people have told me that there was more energy, more enthusiasm in the building," said Steve Violetta, senior vice president of business affairs who joined the Red Wings in mid-season. "I think that had a lot to do with rolling back prices. New people came in the building and brought new energy."

Why would someone want to "lock" in last years rate if the Wings are lowering prices?!

10% are being lowered. locking in is for the 90% that aren't being lowered.

How long before we see "premium game" pricing in Detroit? Teams act like it's a money tree. All the bottom feeders are using it, Florida the latest. I'd be thrilled if I were a Panther fan. They have a crap team all but one year of their existence and now they charge extra if you want to go watch them play a good team.
