    Default Game 7 - what would you do?

    If someone offered you a crazy amount for your tickets like $1,000 each - would you still go to game 7 or take the money and pay for a good chunk of your season seats cost? Just wondering what you would do?

    I was asked this question last run and I stopped him b4 he could finish. I said no. I thought about it a few days and $10,000 sit in my head, I still wouldn't do it cuz sure I'd pay bills and such but that would be long gone the memories last forever.

    I hope we don't even get to a game 7 where that situation could play out. Still not sure what I would do...

    I have Game 2/7 tickets as a half-season ticket holder. I bought Game 5 tickets, figuring I'd sell them if they ended up not being able to clinch. I listed them at three times the going rate on StubHub, figuring I'd lower the price/remove them once I knew for sure. Instead, some weirdo bought them before Game 1 (seriously, there were hundreds of cheaper comparable tickets available for way less). I don't get the money right away, so now I can't afford to replace them (even though there are still plenty available for less than I sold). As someone who literally sold potential cup-clinching tickets for over $1,000 each, I can tell you I certainly don't feel great about it. Will gladly trade my profits for a sweep.

    I wouldn't trade my 2012 game 6 memory for any amount of money.

    If the series goes 7, would you consider selling the seats or would you definitely go and see history in the making?

    I wouldn't even consider it. (To confirm, also would never have sold potential clinching Game 5 tix--they somehow sold at my ridiculous placeholder price).

    Depends on how much $1,000 since it's different for everyone. If that's not really life changing (i.e. get you out of debt, help buy an engagement ring, etc.), then what's the point? That said, I would sell my ticket for $3,000 or so (definitely not $1,000) but that's only because I was at Game 6 in 2012 and there will only be one "first time". I don't think I would have sold that ticket.

    History in the making? Yeah right. That "might" have been true in 2012 when we won for the first time, but not this go around. Maybe not a grand but $1500+ a seat and I'd watch with a group of buddies at my local bar.

    The history would be first team to win the Stanley Cup while playing the maximum of 28 games. This could be tied (doubt it) but never broken.
