That is a bit disappointing to see ticket prices that high. When we had it in Vancouver the tickets weren't nearly that high, but they sold packages first (all A pool games all Playoff games) and most of the tickets were sold that way. Then a month before they opened up all remaining tickets and they sold out completely. The B pool was done outside of Vancouver in a smaller market, but they sold that out as well.
If I remember correctly it cost me $900 for a pair of tickets to every pool A game and all the playoff games. So that works out to about $20/ticket. That was for seats in the 1st row of the upper bowl.
I've only seen Canadian and US games on TV, but they look like the are full.
