I mean … it is pretty cool to see Patrick Kane in New York City.

Back in February, the New York Rangers pulled not just one, but two blockbuster trades, with the marquee landing being Patrick Kane from the Chicago Blackhawks. The first big fish that the Rangers reeled in was Vladimir Tarasenko from the St. Louis Blues.

On Wednesday night, New York squares off against the Philadelphia Flyers on the road. Kane, however, will not be playing because the Rangers want him to have time to get used to New York City. Instead, Kane will make his debut in that beautiful blue and red sweater, as well as in the iconic Madison Square Garden, on Thursday against the Ottawa Senators.

Want to attend to see the monumental moment?

You better have a bag.

At the time of this writing, the cheapest pair of tickets that you can buy comes in at a tally of just over $500, according to Ticketmaster — the official ticket partner of the New York Rangers. In total, there are only four kinds of tickets you can get that come under $300 each, and if you think you’re going to save money in the standing room, think again — those tickets cost $325 a pop.

And that’s just in the upper levels of MSG.

For example: a close-up view of Patrick Kane will cost you around $2,000.

If you got it like that, it’s worth it. Do you, boo boo. (RELATED: Louisville Cardinals Men’s Basketball Is So Sh*t That Their Halftime Show Dog Took One On The Court)

Personally, I’m just grabbing a jersey — I’m diggin’ the swag.
