Everyone around me I know renewed their season tickets, as did I, but hope to sell more next year.
San Jose was the No.1 team in the regular season and they pretty much admitted they would have lost money even if they had made the SCF. That's a team that's been around for a while, has been a contender for a while, and should have a strong local presence.
TB won a Cup 5 years ago and now they have one of the worst attendances in the league. For more examples of why FLA sucks as a sports place, look at the Marlins who have 2 WCs in the last 11 years, consistently field decent (if very cheap) teams and can't draw more than 10,000 per night.
If it ain't football, Florida ain't interested.
The NHL for some reason decided to put 2 teams there. Fail. Neither one of them is financially viable.
