I'd love for that to be the case but honestly I don't think it's going to happen this year. Maybe if the team is kicking ass but even then it's going to be tough. Moyes and Balsillie worked hard at making this year a complete wash and unfortunately they did a good job. That said, if someone buys the team and there is no "out clause", attendance will get noticeably better than it has been and will slowly but surely rebound. By the olympic break though, probably not.
