It's disgusting.
Prior to the 2004-2005 lockout the smaller Canadian markets such as Edmonton were still selling out, they just couldn't compete with the bigger market teams for signing UFA's. Today some markets such as Phoenix and Florida can't get people to attend their games, even though both those teams have had recent sucess making the Playoffs.
