I don't understand why Whaler boosters are so pleased they hijacked a team and peeved off a group of people who were enjoying AHL hockey when all they could do is complain it wasn't the NHL and wouldn't watch it. If you really care, show up on a Wednesday night once in awhile.

The team was hardly hijacked. All the Wolf Pack fans seem to forget that MSG were the ones who handed the keys over to Baldwin thus enabling the re-brand.

This bit is hard to decipher, but I'm not sure how it's relevant. The Whale brand doubled the ST holder base and has seen 3 crowds over 13k in 2 1/2 years compared to the Wolf Pack who's only crowd over 13,000 came in 1998.
