Add in the Ducks and you'll get another pool of 30K-50K
Not to mention the transplants from Philly, Pitt, etc who attend their former home teams in large numbers when they play here and will likely show up for something like a winter classic
I agree that getting 60-70k won't be the problem. The issue is NBC (or whoever has the TV rights) wants a game that will get ratings. Pens have gone twice because of Sid. The fact that the ratings were higher this year just told NBC that they were right putting Sid and OV in a game together. They would put the same two team next year if they could.
Doughty and Fowler are getting some national interest, but not enough for NBC to move the game west of the Mississippi River.
