5. 6 other outdoor NHL games for the first time in the same season
6. recycled special event uniforms from the previous season
7. Canucks franchise having difficulty legitimately selling out in the regular season and playoffs because of price gouging.

This event could really not be marketed any worse.
Valid points except #7. The Canucks have sold out every game for the past 10 some-odd years.
