That was an utterly backhanded comment. The Isles sell out EVERY playoff game. The attendance issues have nothing to do with the team on the ice but the fact that the fans hate the owner. Once he realizes that he can't charge the fans $55 to sit in the upper rows at the coliseum, the fans will be back. The Isles have a TON of fans on Long Island but unfortunately the owner needs some simple lessons in economics... Make tickets a bit cheaper, alot more people will come.
You took a shot at my team and I am not going to respond by taking a shot at your team with what I am about to say... Alot of the lower seats at the Garden are occupied by businessmen. Corporations own those seats and rightfully so. You guys play in the best city in the world, in the most famous arena in the world. The Isles do not have the same corporate backing that you guys do. If we did, maybe our building would be filled a bit more.
Also remember this, penn station is DIRECTLY under the Garden! It is SOOO easy to get there via public transportation. Unless you drive your own car to the Coliseum, there is no other way of getting there. I have had season tickets for 6 years now and I live 5 minutes from the coliseum. If I lived 45 minutes away, I probably would not have the full season. With how bad rush hour traffic is on weeknights on Long Island, I would never be able to get to the games. It's very easy to just hop on a train and not have to worry about it.
I dont know what you guys are all upset about anyway. I know it sucks to lose to your rival 4 times in a row but you guys beat us 6 in a row 2 years ago. What is important is where you end up at the end of the year and you will no doubt end up ahead of us. Isles might squeak into the 8th spot but you guys will probably end up 5th or 6th. When you have guys like Jagr and Shanny on your team, you have a chance to win every game.
