And you don't consider 97.5% attendance doing well?
So if the preds are doing fine, and this subsidy goes away ( as some politicians have advocated) where do this shortage come from ?
The coyotes demonstrate that you cant keep subsidising a team while other community needs get savaged. Or more accurately you cant do it for long before the torches and pitchforks come out.
And I agree that 97.5 attendance is great, but if some of those seats are filled because the tickets are artifically cheap then that does not help much. The discrepancy between the preds and the habs is not based on attendance, but on the revenue the habs make keeping the bell center at 975 capacity and above.
