Well there's certainly been a drop off in interest online as far as hockey is concerned...just take a look around the boards, the amount of activity is at an all time low. The question really is, will they come back...to be honest I think pro sports has been for some time losing fans, at least as a percentage of the potential out there and the more greed that is evidenced and the weaker the product the more people lose interest and perhaps more importantly the fewer fans come on board.

The effect that a few AHL games on MSG will have are probably better represented in advertising dollars vs cost of production than how many fans it will retain in the long term.
