Canucks ticket prices plummeting online
Watch: Bandwagon hockey fans are jumping off in droves right now and you only have to look at Canucks ticket prices for proof. Brian Coxford reports.
There’s not a whole lot of silver linings to the Vancouver Canucks collapse – unless you’re a bargain hunter for cheap tickets.
On the reseller website StubHub, the cheapest tickets for the remaining eight home games have decreased between 10 and 45 per cent from where they stood on January 22nd.
The Canucks were 10 games above .500 then, and the cheapest tickets for an April 1st game against the New York Rangers were going for $73.50.
Since then, Vancouver has won just 3 of 16 games – and now the cheapest tickets can be found below face value for $40.70.Cheapest Canucks tickets available on StubHub, now vs. January 22 »

The number of tickets available for each game on StubHub have gone down by only 5-15% during that period as well. It means that there are just as many people putting their tickets back on the market as those purchasing them.
Earlier this week, Mike Gillis sent a letter to season ticket holders, explaining the trade of Roberto Luongo and asking them to keep confidence in the team.
“Usually you don’t see a letter like that until the postseason. To do that before the renewal of season tickets, I’ve never seen that before. There’s a lot of fans that do not want to come back. They’re disappointed. The decision making has been atrocious,” said Kingsley Bailey of Vancouver Ticket Services on Unfiltered.
He said further ticket breaks by the team itself would be necessary.
“They’re going to have to come up with some types of packages.”
