A lot of groceries.
Or a Platinum-level ticket to one of the “optimum” games on the Canadiens’ home schedule.
The most expensive seats at the Bell Centre sell for $249 per game. That jumps to $409 for optimum games: about a dozen per season, including visits by rivals Boston and Toronto.
Corresponding numbers last season were $232 and $345.
Top price in Toronto is $430.50.
Let’s hope the games are worth it.
