The NY press says the NJ Devils made $26m with their playoff tix sales, during their 2011-2012 playoff run. That shows how a strong postseason can boost a team's revenue.

Phoenix was last in the nhl in attendance, during the regular season in 2011-2012.
Their strong playoff run should have been used to help build attendance. They have a young, talented team and a very good gm. There is no reason to think with the ownership issue settled and a young playoff team, that Phoenix can't build their base, increase their regular season tix sales.
