Like many have said, that tournament specifically is far more popular in Canada than the USA and I know for a fact that people making the trip south were willing to pay obscene amounts of money for a ticket.
it is the same reason you see so many leafs fans at buffalo games. it isn't because buffalo fans can't sell out the arena, but you can recoup nearly the entire cost of season tickets (depending on your section) by selling your leaf tickets to canadians...
