That number doesn't include those who already subscribe. I would assume that shift came with a subscription hike.

Asuming isles miss the playoffs this year, come back with lowest payroll next season n miss the playoffs will Wang be holding snow n gordan accountable by firing them or will Wang just focus on his city n china hockey dreams rather then be concerned with wins n losses?

You’re a beaut, eastonhockey. To answer your question, Charles Wang is not going to fire Garth Snow under any circumstances for a very long time. Snow will determine Gordon’s future. I expect Scott will be back next season no matter what. As a close observer of this team, you probably knew the answer to your question…CB
