Think here.....a Rag fan not going to MSPee 41 games due to cost would have four nights at NVMC to go to easily, instead of commuting to a few games at MSPee. Of course fan interest is there.....Montreal fans go to the NVMC as well. But LI is not doing well, so there have to be a ton taking advantage of just being able to see cheaper hockey. When the Isle do well, we outnumber them but that's only on even number decades.
