An opening night crowd of 3331 on a Saturday night portends weak attendance for the rest of the season. The next three home games occur on a Friday, Sunday, and Wednesday. I doubt the Chill will come close to 3k on any of those home dates.
Denver, Brampton, Arizona, and Saint Charles are going to be fighting for the bottom of the CHL attendance race. It's highly unlikely any of those teams will finish the season averaging much more than 2500 per game.
The CHL is guaranteed to be a financial train wreck this season. Suddenly, QC's attendance figures won't seem so bad.
