SABRES DOSE: Poor Canadians might not get tickets

Lost in the frenzy of Sabres season ticket sales is the plight of the poor Canadian hockey fan.

Consider this tidbit from Friday’s Toronto Star:

“Southern Ontario fans accustomed to slipping down to Buffalo to watch NHL games may find themselves out of luck this year. Or at least a lot more challenged.”

Team officials have finally used the influx of Canadians who come to see Toronto to their advantage, with creative ticket pricing that fluctuates between opponents and game nights. All four home dates with the Leafs carry a hefty price tag — tickets that climb to $150.
