16 playoff Canuck home games = $17,000

My eyes just bulged after reading this on the vancouver sun:

link: Cup run would cost season ticket holders $17,000 for two reds

Two red seats -not club seats -will cost $17,000 should the Canucks go the distance. And the consensus among those prepared to pay the price seems to be: "Hey, we've waited 40 years for this. Bring it on!"

Since i live out east, should the Canucks make it deep into the playoffs and considering the crazy amount of $ it would cost to watch a game in vancouver, i am seriously considering watching a game in enemy territory.

ROAD TRIP!!

Update: to clarify, that's the total cost of buying 16 pairs playoff tickets (32 individual tickets).  17000/16 = $1000 for two tickets.  YIKES!  That's pretty much how much the olympic gold medal hockey game cost.
