They're often season or partial seasons tickets, so if thats the case it's ideal to see them get ripped off the book. Take a look at the tickets and compare them to old stubs or something to make sure they look legit.
This year's season tickets also have the ticket owners name on them. If you're buying them from the original owner, you could always ask for ID and match it with the ticket.

Lines are definitely needing a change. Raymond was awful tonight. He's good enough defensively, but he is really killing the offense on the second line. The second line has 3 players who are way too similar in the style they play and needs a shakeup.

Proposed lines for Saturday.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Higgins
Raymond - Pahlsson - Hansen
Malhotra - Lapierre - Kassian

Maybe he is feeling a bit more pressure now with the extra ice time and more responsibility.

Nah, the trade rumours and back injury from the finals have rattled him.

But prior to the injury, he started regressing after the year he scored 25 goals...

Come playoff time, I don't want to see him on the second line anymore. If I got a dollar every time he gets checked/falls/loses the puck/turns it over, I could buy ALOT of jerseys to replace my Hodgson one lolol

Yeah. I think he's pretty much played his way off the second line, don't know how AV doesn't see this. They've given him every opportunity to succeed and he's done nothing.

I was listening to the post game on team1040 and most of the callers were ripping into Raymond and asking why AV gave Raymond more time than the Sedins and had Higgins sitting on the bench for most of the game. Callers were even going after team1040 reporters for not asking AV after the game and I hate to say but I agree with the anger some fans have towards Raymond.

I'm frankly sick with the way Raymond plays. He has incredibly speed but has no finish whatsoever. He either over handles the puck or loses the puck between his feet. I believe it was Tony Gallagher during the 2nd intermission that said Raymond could be sitting up in the box come playoff time.

Yeah but he got a pass in the early half because firstly, he was injured coming into the season, and secondly when he got back he was still in "just got back from serious injury" grace period.

To a much lesser extent, Kesler is exactly on the same boat and also starting to get almost the same observation thus far but at the moment is nowhere near as bad as Raymond; just definitely not as dangerous (to other teams) as last year.

I rather see Raymond in the box and play Weise play on the 4th instead. Or even Bitz. Ya watching Raymond play is fucking frustrating. Throw Malhotra on the 3rd since they have center in the 4th as well. Work in bitz/weise on the 4th with Lappy and Kassian. Lappy has a good face off %, so if Manny can win face offs for the 3rd line, we might have more scoring chances off the bat in the offensive zone.

Just my 2 cents.

Can't wait for Saturday, Sabres vs Nucks, my 2 favorite teams playing each other, Cody & Hoff return and Miller back to form with back to back shutouts. haha Miller has been on a hot streak with his California actress wife travelling with him during the Sabres' west coast trip, coincidence? LOL

Ennis-Hodgson-Stafford have looked great together so far, Cody has created at least 4 or 5 scoring chances for his linemates in their 1st two games together, timing is a bit off but I think that will come soon enough if Ruff doesn't turn into master juggler like usual.

If you watched his game in Phoenix, it was MUCH better during the St.Louis game.

Kassian played well in the St. Louis game. He made good passes in the defensive zone, had five hits, and had some shots on the Blue goalie Elliott.

Good read from the Province: The Legion of Blog.

Kassian nicknames put forth in article: BadKassian, ZK Broiler, lol.

Coach AV should strongly consider tinkering the second line. May Ray is awful in the offensive zone. He's a perimeter player that skates miles every game, but lacks finish.

There's been so many times where I've seen Raymond skate quickly into the offensive zone with the puck, stop at the half boards, and try to pass it to his line mates. The guy will not play aggressive and attack the net.

AV should reunite the American Express line of Booth, Kesler, and Higgins. Amex line!

Put May Ray on the third line and play a defensive role instead. He doesn't deserve to stay on the second line.

MayRays fly up the right side into the zone, stop on the half boards, pass in to the middle... play is not too bad of a play if theres a good trailer coming to pick the pass up, but it just doesnt seem to work often enough and is getting predictable. Im surprised no one has mentioned a comparison to Hanks play where he putters over the line, cuts to the center and stops and waits for someone to pass to, even if he could take it to the net. That is predictable as all hell.

I would too like to see the American line again. I think the problem with it tho is booth and higgy are both left wingers. mayray on the 3rd is a good spot as he is reasonably reliable in his own end but he can turn it on to get out of the zone, and hansen can keep up to him on a break out.
