My wife went to Queen's and although I didn't, I spent enough time there... even played intramural sports. I know the area. I don't think they would support an AHL team, not once the lockout gets lifted and the novelty wears off.

Jeff Hunt focused on marketing to families to get crowds out to the 67's because he recognised that marketing to students was a bad idea. For starters, students are a transient population, and so you keep having to start over and don't build a hardcore fanbase. Also, having too many students at a game leads to an atmosphere which is not very family friendly, so it drives the more stable ticket buyers away.
