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.

Your are correct sir. It is all about bang for the buck We choose this entertainment by choice. A night taking in a game with parking and dinner sets one back a couple hundred dollars. Last night dinner was a little over a hundred for us two being V Day but is never less than 60 to 70 on gameday. 4 beers at the game will not even discuss that price. Parking and the tickets. You are fooling yourself if you do not think people will just walk away from this team unless they are not better on the ice. I has happened before to this tem and it has happened to the Titians.

Dean I was not pointing that at you
