St. Louis had horrible attendance until the playoff race started and they won the West to make the SCF.
No one cared about the sport in these "non-traditional hockey markets" !
What was Bettman thinking when he expanded teams into all those non-traditional hockey markets?
I love reading this from players and player sycophants alike.
