If you can get 10K people to a game at $20 each. The Marlies are a good example. Sure theyhave more non-hockey
pro-competition but the market is much bigger.
If a canucks affiliate placed in vancouver proper drew 5K people it'd be a success, but there is no way they use they use rogers arena for that.
