TB, you know I'm with you on the issue, but let's not exaggerate. The article you posted a while back (link) said that they had 33% capacity when the puck dropped and 40% when the stragglers filtered in. In a 17k+ arena, that's still somewhere between 5,500 and 7,000 people. Pathetic for an NHL rink and not even close to the 11k+ they officially announced, but still a lot more than 500 people.
