So can I see the future, you ask?

No. But what I can do is read the writing on the wall.
As long as tickets are selling and people are watching the games on tv the world could be on fire, but the NHL would be fine. And I don't think you can find a single source that states this year the NHL was any worse off revenue wise then the years before that.

Even with unemployment at 10% that's roughly 5% higher than normal...how many of those 5% (or 7-9million actual people) are hockey fans? I don't know, but apparently not enough to stop packing arenas.
