In 07-08 they dropped and outdrew only Quad City, Springfield, and Lowell.
However in 08-09 they again outdrew
So they outdrew TORONTO!!!!! TWICE in the 3 years of their existence. TORONTO!!!
I do not think Toronto deserves hockey since they were unable to outdraw Iowa.
Lol Toronto....it's not the Leafs. It's the money scking pit AHL Franchise they run, yawn. Toronto doesn't care about that team, they really don't need an AHL team.
A third of the league is okay but also in each case three of the markets no longer even exist. I haven't the time at the moment to look up seating capacities in all these places but Binghamton can only seat just over 4K for example, if iowa holds that much more they SHOULD, as should many others.
