, and last season they averaged 5,480 per game which put them 14th. No team in the AHL averages 10,000 per game.
As for Brampton moving proves Toronto isn't a hockey town? The driving distance between the Hershey Center (Steelheads Arena) and Powerade Center (Battalion Arena) is 6.4km!!!! Too much hockey in too small an area.
And the GTA has about 5 million people? Four games doesn't make a good sample for the season. I think Toronto is a Leafs town. The AHL ASG draw 7800 few years ago, Hershey drew over 10,000 last year, nearly equal to the town's population.
