If the prospect of a succesful season is the difference between sellouts or no sellouts, than why do the Devils struggle with attendace? If it's not a rich hockey market attendance will be slow growing, with or without a cap and forced parity.
Thats why i got a kick out of that joke we call ESPN, when they said they should keep the Devils in the league, because they are part of the grass roots of hockey. The Devils win every year and never draw, i fyou are gonna contract teams you would contract them.
