As a side note, the Coyotes ticket revenues were $13,328,609 for 2008-09 according to these documents. They lost $27 million. To get an idea of real attendance as opposed to announced, if we use the posted $37/ticket average for 41 games, we get an average of 8,786 fans per game. I realize this isn't scientific.

The NHL's published attendance for the Coyotes for 2009-09 was 14,875, which either means they are lying (likely) or that the average ticket was $21/game (even more likely). Probably a mixture of both.

This year, they stand to lose $40 million.
