Wouldn't imagine that'd have anything to do with the attendance, as tragic as that was. There was a vigil in Bushnell Park a few blocks from the arena. Most AHL crowds are built on advance sales. I haven't seen a great walk-up crowd at a game in Hartford in awhile.
The games just aren't marketed correctly. Baldwin changing the team from the Wolf Pack to the Whale (and them sticking with it) is what screwed everything up. Divided a fan base in two.
Anyways - Connecticut is a HEAVY place right now. Nothing is more important than Newtown, so I couldn't give a **** about the Whale's 1-0 loss I witnessed tonight, their lousy defense or their inability to score a goal. I can't wait to hug my little cousins on Saturday.
