RISKY MOVE: YAHOO SPORTS' Greg Wyshynski wrote this is "no different than variable pricing plans: It’s a way to gouge the invading fans and profit from them." But "just like variable pricing, the home fans take some damage too" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 8/14). CBSSPORTS.com's Chris Peters wrote it is a "risky play for the Predators business side." Even though Blackhawks fans may "take over the building, they're still contributing money" to the Predators by buying a ticket. If this package "turns many of them away, there's no guarantee the team will be able to make up the ticket sales with locals" (CBSSPORTS.com, 8/14).
