The difference being that the Gatineau Olympiques and the Ottawa 67s also draw well.
And that's because Ottawa is a hockey town, while Toronto isn't.
I'm sure there are all kinds of reasons why hockey (aside from the Leafs) doesn't really matter much in the Big Smoke, but the fact remains that it doesn't.
Coming off of last season the Marlies have drawn well and Oshawa is fine. What's your point. It was only a few seasons ago your owners had to come out publically and BEG fans to go to scotiabank. Why should they have to do that if you're so dedicated? I heard all the excuses of the arena being too far and not a proper bus route. You aren't hockey fans. Ottawa is a government town, we'll continue to outnumber you in your own arena and boo your players, you live in the sticks, and your city closes at 4. Pissing contest done. Close this thread.
