Hamilton has if not mistaken a population of just under 700,000. That is a hockey market, and if it wasn't proof enough that people there are willing to pay to watch....
SEASON TICKERS WERE SOLD OUT BEFORE THERE WAS EVEN A TEAM!!
Don't know what else Balisle could do to prove that Hamilton is the next best viable location for an NHL franchise.
Everything you say is true, except it wasn't an hour... it was a day and half... but yeah they had 14,000 paid deposits on season tickets in a day and a half.
