Platinum pricing for Sabres-Leafs

The Sabres released a new category to their new variable pricing plan today, creating a Platinum level for three games against the Maple Leafs and another contest against the Canadiens. The cost for one ticket for those four games ranges between $78 and $233.

It looks like a pretty hefty hike, but it was long overdue. Every year, Leafs fans walk into HSBC Arena and make it seem like a home game -- for the Leafs. If they want to come to Buffalo and turn the rink upside down, fine, but the least they can do is pay their freight.

The rivalry is terrific, but is it worth that much money to watch a terrible Toronto team that hasn't made the playoffs since the lockout and a mediocre Buffalo team that missed the postseason last year?
