They must have been obscenely expensive, to justify how Winnipeg never hit 90% in a given year (ever) despite being in the playoffs and having some seriously exciting players.

It's the price of tickets that are more important, not how many butts are in the seat.
If you have that information, I'd love to see it. Since I don't, and I know you don't, we have to work with what we have.

There also aren't enough games against "traditional" teams to pad Florida's numbers with. I can't imagine people coming down from Canada in October feeling ecstatic over seeing a three-game homestand against Carolina, Atlanta, and Tampa.
