Bottom of the league in attendance most of the years prior as well.
Those numbers are absolute, not percentage of seats filled. Having one of the oldest and smallest arenas in the NHL at the time (Maple Leaf Gardens and the Montreal Forum were in the process of being closed down and those are big-markets) has nothing to do with that now would it....

As you can see by the graphs of the home attendance for the Jets, it was averaging near sell out levels through most of its history. This was not like many Phoenix Coyote games where they were often only half filling (or less) the building.
