I do agree that a March 1 date is a gamble. Weren't chunks of the Midwest and Northeast in the 80s earlier this March? I think there was a stretch where it was actually cooler here in Arizona.
I am pretty sure that NBA and NHL fans are not one in the same . It is virtually impossible for one to steal fans from the other.
