Devils Attendance - Are ticket prices too high?



So I was looking at the recap of the Flyers game, and the attendance was 15700 - nearly 2k below capacity.  On a Saturday night.  Against a key rival.

It really pains me that our great, successful team is not doing better in attendance. I saw a quote from Lou back 7 or 8 years ago that "once we get our own building with access to mass transit you won't get a seat".  Atttendance overall is up, but if you look at the numbers closely, it really has alot to do with the fact that the Flyers opening night did alot better than the Islanders last year (obviously it should have) and then we played the Rangers in game 2.  Outside of that, the attendance is down alot of nights compared to similar games last year (though not by much)

 

I know the teams price for revenue maximization, but I can't help but think that there needs to be more variation in the pricing. The team actually went the other way this year and cut the number of price categories nearly in half I think.

I just think we should be able to sell out a game like the Flyers game.  I am trying to recruit people all over the place to become fans of this team. 

If you were running this team would you cut some of the prices in the lower bowl?  That is where I see the open seats - up top seems to do pretty well.
