If local economies are in the tank you can see why some teams have to price their product so cheaply.

The question is whether that is a permanent situation, or is it a blip. Look at Buffalo, good attendance but one of the lowest prices.

Winnipeg has an undersized arena's and charges a premium for their product.
Are we the strongest economy in this hemisphere, or are we just being gouged because we are dedicated Leaf fans.

I might add we are being gouged by both players and owners.
