When the Edmonton Oilers AHL team use to be the Toronto Roadrunners I would say that was true, because I remember their only games which got good crowds was against the St. Johns Maple Leafs and the reason was people wanting to see the Leafs prospects at that time.

However considering the Marlies just sold out a game at the Air Canada Centre obviously people wanted to see them play and their crowds have been very good because they are a winning team and last year's run to the Calder Cup Finals.
