Agreed. The link below suggests that the Oil Kings averaged more fans than the Winterhawks this past season. Click on the blue shaded bars for each team to get to this past season's numbers.

The Oil Kings averaged about 900 fans/game this past season and it looks like we've pretty much outdone them in attendance every season since we returned to the WHL with the exception of one season where they had about 300 fans/game more.
