This has always been a frustrating topic, in particular the mean attendance, because of the maximum capacity Bridgestone can hold. Some arenas are at liberty to have "nobody" show up because they can reach a higher maximum capacity for sell-outs, and thus "easily" keeping their avg. attendance above that revenue sharing mark. We can sell out one game and the next game with 12,887 and average 15,000. The Jets must sell out every game to average 15,000. The Sens can sell out one game and the next game with 10,847 and still average 15,000. If we reached maximum capacity and the next game at 10,847 then our average would be 13,980. The capacity average for all NHL arenas is 18,331 and we are "just a hair" of being one standard deviation below that mean. So the mystery to me is when we do reach maximum capacity, how many more above that mark could it have been? Saturday games are always popular in N'ville because of the travel that some of us do because of the crappy infrastructure we have around here due to everybody hating rail travel. I would love to hope on a train or light rail to see game and would indeed see more games if rail was available, but NOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooo! It's fly or drive.
