Sellouts matter because it gives the Preds a chance to have more people get a positive experience. That experience includes the game, but it's also the arena, amenities and customer service. It's part of building the fanbase. It's how they can build the 501 Club with a reasonable expectation of that working, rather than it being a pipe-dream way to grab some incremental revenue. Bodies in-and-around the building drive the overall economic impact the Preds have on downtown and the SoBro area.

IMHO, it is a VERY big deal that they are selling out the place, both as a point of overall pride, from a marketing perspective, and for driving the longevity of the franchise.
