To be honest, the Debbies do really well for an NHL team in a city whose population is only appromixately 1/4 White.
I'm sorry, but when you can walk up to a window for a game 7 in a playoff series or a Stanley Cup game and BUY A TICKET, you are not doing well.

And for the record, he was talking about when the Devils first moved to the area in the 80's.

The thought and expectation was that in 20 years, they would have this HUGE fan base.

When you cannot sellout PO and SCF games, you do NOT have a massive fan base.

Its not possible.
