Just for fun, here's a list of teams that have sold out every home game in a season at least once in the last 25 years.

Anaheim, Boston, Buffalo, Calgary, Chicago, Colorado, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Edmonton, Florida, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Montreal, NY Rangers, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Jose, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Vancouver, Washington, Winnipeg.

Teams that have had at least one season of less than 75% attendance in the last 25 years.

Anaheim, Buffalo, Chicago, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Minnesota* New Jersey, NY Islanders, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Vancouver, Winnipeg*.
*city had less than 75% with their previous team

Now, wait a minute...11 teams in the last 25 years have both sold out an entire season AND been less than 75% at least once. Are they bad markets or not?
