Abbotsford and OKC, don't seem to get a good following as well.
I'm willing to bet all of the above teams can top 1000 on a Saturday night. Denver couldn't most recently. I'm starting to wonder if the Chill are sliding towards perpetual sub-1000 crowds as well.
Abbotsford is a joke. That whole thing was another Calgary Flames-inspired disaster, just like Omaha and QC were before it. Those of us in QC who lost the Flames to Abbotsford could see this train wreck coming from a mile away. The travel costs alone were ridiculous.
Oklahoma City should be looking to relocate any day now. It isn't working there. I think the NBA team is (pardon the expression) stealing all the thunder during the fall and winter months. Their presence leaves very little oxygen for the Barons.
