Thanks for that info but doesn't really change the Org being in a lot of trouble for gate and it looking like the subtraction of Rick Nash is making a difference as of course expected.
Just seems like this is only going to get worse without a big name marquee player in the lineup. My take is a Rick Nash in a Columbus market will prove in time to have been worth 1-2K tickets sold/game. Right now the difference standing more around 600 but expect that number to grow in time as interest wanes.
