Sabres' variable pricing has good buys

The Sabres announced their variable pricing designation for 2010-11 individual games Thursday and there are some pretty intriguing choices to make.

While all individual ticket prices have gone up (from $1-$7compared to last year), there are still plenty of good buys to be had. I like how the Sabres have cut back on the platinum games, to just two of them against Toronto. There are only eight gold games and they're all reasonable (Montreal and Pittsburgh twice each, Boston, Toronto, Detroit and the home opener against the New York Rangers).

The silver, bronze and value games have some terrific choices to jump on when tickets go on sale. My list would include Oct. 11 against Chicago (silver), Oct. 22 against Ottawa (silver), Nov. 15 against Vancouver (value), Nov. 19 against Los Angeles (silver), Dec. 9 against San Jose (bronze), Jan. 11 against Philadelphia (silver) and Feb. 20 against Washington (silver).

If you're fans of seeing Henrik Tallinder and Toni Lydman make their returns, you'll get value pricing on Oct. 13 against New Jersey and Dec. 21 against Anaheim.
