Saw this one coming a mile away:
Seats from the arena will go on sale to Penguin season ticket holders in the next few days, a sale that will run until Nov. 30. That will be followed by a sale to the general public on Dec. 1. A pair of seats will cost $495. Buyers can choose from red, blue, black and, of course, orange seats, but they will not be able to request individual seat numbers. About 5,000 seat pairs will be available for purchase.
The seat sale will be followed by an online auction Dec. 8 for other arena memorabilia, some of which will include Penguins logos or the signatures of players.
The auction portion of the sale will take place on IglooSeats.com, and is expected to raise in the ballpark of $1.6 million for the SEA and $800,000 for the Penguins, who will donate their share to their foundation.The SEA's share ultimately could be used to help pay for the demolition of the Igloo.
