I feel like anyone who speaks of Vancouver in the same breath as Toronto or New York has never been to Vancouver and knows nothing of the city.

Compared to Toronto, New York and all of the American NHL markets, Vancouver is tiny. And the fact that they are only just now having slight trouble selling a few hundred extremely expensive playoff tickets in a lockout shortened year is just further indication of how great the market is and has been. The Canucks play in a relatively small market but their revenues are in the same ballpark as the massive markets like Toronto, New York, Chicago, etc.

I'm still surprised that the tickets weren't gobbled up immediately like they usually are but its nice to see that there is a limit and some push back from the fans after the lockout.
