Am I making sense?
What were the ticket prices back then, if anyone knows? Probably plays a HUGE factor in what type of fan you have going to playoff games, especially SCF. All of the better/rowdy/diehard Canuck fans weren't able to muster up a boatload of money for Game 7, and instead stood outside for free to watch.

I think you make sense though. I'm guessing there were less bandwagon fans back then as well seeing as now it's "cool" to like the Canucks if you live in the lower mainland or BC.
