Found October 24, 2011 on Bleeding All Blue:
Eric Roitman over at 5-Hole shared the email he got as a season subscriber from the New York Rangers concerning Winter Classic tickets.  Here is the key excerpt...

Based on the number of tickets we have available to offer our Season Subscriber family, we will be reaching out to you via email the week of October 24th, 2011. At that time, you will receive detailed information on the seating configuration and a questionnaire that asks you to rank all available price points in order of preference. Please note that as the visiting team, we will be unable to accommodate all Rangers Season Subscribers with an offer to purchase Tickets. As such, we will be contacting you in order of your Subscription tenure with an offer. Those Subscribers that wish to purchase tickets and receive an offer will be assigned a maximum of 2 seats based upon availability.

Tough to fault the Rangers for offering the tickets based on seniority of subscription to season tickets, but a lot of season ticket holders are going to be left without an opportunity to purchase tickets.  For those who don't own season tickets, the secondary market is your only hope to get tickets and the cost is going to be steep.

Be sure to check out the rest of the email over at 5-hole and if you aren't already, continue to check back there for his great work.

Power Play Comes Through – Rangers Beat Jets

The Rangers won 2-1 in Winnipeg last night in a game that can best be described dull. At this stage of the season however, all that matters to the Rangers is that they left the MTS Arena with 2 points to make their Western Canadian trip a highly successful one. All in all as the Rangers head home, despite playing inconsistent error prone hockey to begin the year they will be more...

Trade Zuccarello?

Mats Zuccarello has a lot of talent, an abundance of skill and plenty of vision, but until he strings a few quality performances together at the NHL level doubts will remain about his ability to stick in the big league. Given the prospects coming up through the system, Zuccarello is in danger of becoming increasingly irrelevant in New York. Regardless of whether you think Zuccarello...

Moderately Better…Right? - Rangers @ Thra…err….Jets Post Game Thoughts…

If this was last year, I would have been at the game, in person, watching the Rangers battle the Thrashers. Instead I lost my only chance to watch the team I love live thanks to the Thrashers jumping ship and move to Winnipeg, so for that reason I truly despite Winnipeg, the Jets, their stupid maple leaf uniform, and everything to do with that franchise. With that said, the...

NY Rangers’ Winter Classic ticket policy favors longtime ‘subscribers’

On Monday, we broke down the 2012 NHL Winter Classic ticket situation for Philadelphia Flyers fans. The abridged version: The general public is screwed and season-ticket holders are being forced to buy seats for the alumni game and the AHL outdoor game for the honor of purchasing Citizens Bank Park Winter Classic tickets. The New York Rangers finally got around to informing their...

Too early for Torts to dissect Rangers

John Tortorella refuses to "dissect" the issues plaguing his club, but after Monday's 2-1 win in Winnipeg, the Rangers coach provided an accurate summary of his team's 3-2-2 start on the road. "We score a couple, we're ugly as hell, and our goaltending has certainly given us an opportunity right on through here," Tortorella said. "So we're...

Postgame: Rangers Squeeze Out Win Over Jets, Go 3-1-0 on Canada Road Trip

I find it amazing that the New York Rangers managed to go 3-1-0 on their road trip through western Canada considering they were dominated for large portions of every game. I said going into the trip that satisfactory would mean grabbing wins in at least two of the four games, but the Rangers did so in three, improving their record on the season to 3-2-2. Six out of a possible eight...

Rangers End Road-Trip With Win Thanks To Biron Goaltending, Callahan Game-Winner

The New York Rangers still are not playing well by any stretch of the imagination, but a Ryan Callahan power play goal at 8:41 of the third period and 27 saves from Martin Biron were enough to give them a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.  The Rangers wrapped up a seven-game road trip with a solid 3-2-2 record including a 3-1 trip to Western Canada.  We can focus on how...

The Rangers Are Homeward Bound

The Rangers will christen the revamped Madison Square Garden on Thursday night, an event that likely means more to Cablevision suits than it does to the team.
