Game 5 is always more attractive than game 1 or 2. Still, I'm very disappointed. I understand west-side hard core fans running out of money. I really do. It's a lot of dough that people weren't budgeting for.

But I always assumed that a championship run in any pro league would attract wealthier casual fans / bandwagoners (just like LA). We're not competing for attention with any other local team right now. I don't care how we spin it, it's baffling that tickets aren't being sold at face value for a Stanley Cup semi-final.

If the conditions for a successful team here have to be:

- perfect economy
- perfect arena location
- week-end games only, except holidays
- stanley cup contention each and every year

...it's just not going to work. Ever. It's obvious no-one around here other than 15,000 Coyote fans give a flying **** whether this team wins, loses or leaves town.
