Secondary market ticket prices have fluctuated from year to year in the $300 to $350 range. 2012 Sasquatch tickets sold for an average of $321, only $6 above the face value price of $315. Looking at the chart below, you can see the obvious trend that ticket prices drop as the event draws closer. Even though tickets sold out for the last two festivals, tickets on the secondary market became a lot more affordable for those most patient, and even sold well below face value. There is nearly a $200 price difference between tickets purchased in February opposed to May.
2012 looks a lot different because it didn't sell out until March or something. 2011 is a much closer model as to what is happening this year.

In 2011 tickets sold out pretty fast (though not in a day) and everyone went nuts and paid hundreds over asking. Then, as the fest got closer prices slowly went down to the point where people were selling them for face value or in some cases even less.
And because everyone loves proof here are what coachella ticket prices on stubhub looked like last year. Note how they just keep getting lower and lower and eventually some people got tickets for less than face value.
Wonk is right though, no one knows for sure what will happen. All we can do is look at the past and make educated guesses.
I like Osheaga but after going last year, it got a little too big for it's britches for me. The lineups to do/get anything (food, water, bathrooms etc) are fucking atrocious and since they moved stages over to the other side of the park across the road, there are some annoying bottlenecks and it takes a long time to move from stage to stage.
That's shitty to hear. I went in 2010 and thought it was fantastic, but it does seem to be getting bigger every year.
There's still a good chance I'll go this year since I have a friend in Montreal and don't have any other vacation planned this year.
If you say that then the only stat that matters for goalies is save %. Wins are probably even more dependant on the team than GAA, because the goalie could stop 75 shots and let one by, but if his team doesn't score a goal he's fucked. Hell even save % depends on his team because they can make the shots a hell of a lot easier to stop if they do their job.
New league, all that matters is which team has the prettiest jerseys and which players get the most bras thrown at them.
If anything needs to be replaced, my vote is for ATOI. When I googled it to see what it meant, I ran across several message board comments which basically said, "this is the dumbest fucking stat in the world." I'm used to it now, so it doesn't bother me as much, but great players on great teams get less minutes than decent players on shitty teams, so the how is the stat relevant?
ATOI is pretty pointless too because it is basically in every other stat. If a guy plays more minutes, he will score more goals, get more assists and take more shots.
The only difference is that +/- is in this league too, so if a player plays lots of minutes for a crappy team, his +/- will probably suck, so you lose out there.
Though the lineup has yet to come out, (should be in the next few weeks though) you should consider Osheaga in Montreal.
1. It's really well organized. 2. Beer guys a shots girls wander the crowd selling booze, so you don't have to move to get a drink. 3. It's in fucking Montreal, the most party city in Canada. (insert Canada doesn't know how to party joke) 4. It's fairly cheap.
I figured you were banking on my Kesler boner. I would have made a counter offer with one of my other two best D men but I put that on here and you just asked for Letang again, so I didn't bother since you don't seem interested in either of them.
