Training camp hasn't even started, hell I didn't even know tickets were on sale yet. It's still summer, of course 50,000 tickets haven't sold.

She might not be the best source but at least she is a reporter at News1130. In case you care, tickets have been on sale for a while.

How sad is it that i might be convinced (especially if Bure dressed for it) to pay the hundred bucks for the alumi game but wouldnt for the actual heritage game?

I just went to ticketmaster and I dont think tickets have gone on sale yet. There may be promo tickets or a limited number floating around but until they actually go on sale I think its a little early to say they arent selling well.

Plus the tickets that this scalper is selling could very well be at a price that is much higher than the actual cost when they do go on sale.

Boy, they should play the winter classic in Van-city right now, the temperature is perfect and it would be great for the ice. :)

Great list, I especially would luv to see your top 3 together: Bure, Nasi and Trevor. I'd add Cliffy Ronning, Courts and maybe B'Mo, guys from here and they do stuff in the city. I was also thinking Cam Neely, too much of a Bruin and not a Canuck?

The Heritage Classic is not a Canucks event but rather an NHL so, as Donny said, it's not our season ticket packages. However, the advanced sale for those game tickets were about $300 a piece and in a corner and a little too low to see the game (the ones I was assigned anyway). It kind of pissed me off since our household has three season ticket packages and two of those packages are in what the Canucks call "Premium Seating" sections. Not worth the money, so I declined. Might think about looking for some if I can get a better vantage point.

About a month ago, Brian, Bruce Ng and I were invited by the NHL to a social media information gathering and got to know a little bit more about the game and its surrounding events. It seemed very organized and although ticket sales were abysmal early on, they have picked up and the event has picked up steam. Vancouver being Vancouver is always more of a last minute city and since everyone else is going to the Heritage Classic, everyone else will follow. There is a couple of public events soon to be announced for the week of the HC, but I am guessing it will be just after the Olympics when they make that announcement.

Also, the Heritage Classic would have served better for the Canucks and Senators if there weren't so many stupid Stadium Series games going on, like the one in LA at Dodger Stadium in the next little while. Not sure why they did so many this season, but events like this are better in smaller portions.

Last thought on this, I am really liking the retro-look that the goaltenders are sporting with the brown pads etc. Looking at the date, I say it's a strange heatwave and the NHL is going to have a hell of a time keeping that ice cold enough in a place that has historically been a warmer venue, even with the roof open.
