I agree..if you build it they will come 8-). Also, when the team actually improves, the fans will come out of the woodwork.

The Devils would be in a similar spot if they hadn't had such a good run of 20 decent years. They SUCKED in the 80's and no one thought they'd make it out alive.

Toronto would have been down and out if it weren't for it being in Canada and such a large city full of hockey culture. I would have been a Toronto fan, but the combination of the Leafs bad play and their own (at that time Harold Ballard), I chose the Islanders.

The funny thing is..I remember checking attendance for the Nordique's games in the 80's..they averaged over 15k per game if I remember correctly which is not bad at all, especially at that time where arenas could only hold 14-19k.

Anyone got any contacts in Facebook..because they got money for a new arena 8-) Facebook Coliseum anyone? 8-)
