Agreed. Nashville is currently averaging 14.5k. Last year, we averaged less than 13.2k. The year before, a little over 13.2K. We are right on the heels of our 01/02 average of 14.7K. I think with the huge games we've got coming up, we should have at least 5 more sellouts. We have 4 saturday home games and we'll probably sell out all of them (Calgary, STL, CHI, and PHO) and two Detroit games left. We only have 6 weekday games that don't involve Detroit (in other words, won't be sellouts). If we get 13k per on those 6 games (we've been hovering around 12.5k recently for weekday games, but with the season winding down, historically our attendance has picked up. Weekday games last year in mid-March and beyond brought attendance of 15-16k) and we get 6 sellouts, we'll be right at 14.7k.

If we average 15.5k in our 6 weekday games and we get those 6 sellouts, our season average for attendance will be over 15k which would be almost 2k over last season. That would be 88% capacity! Not too shabby for a post lockout year.
