Florida has long-standing attendance problems, as does Atlanta and even Carolina (!). TB is about the only team that seems to sell out on a regular basis down there, and that might not even be true anymore. Even Washington (which is culturally a southern city to some extent), has attendance problems.
Anyway, I hope it works out for you guys, but your GM just mortgaged your future for a guy who is very talented but continually getting hurt the older he gets. And he's going to end up back in Philly most likely next year, like Recchi going back to the Pens after Carolina rented him for the playoffs last year.
Two of your best young players and a 1st and 2nd round pick? Man. I would be pissed if I were a Preds fan. This was a ream-job of the first order. If you guys don't win the Cup, your GM just set your team back about 3 years, development wise. Kariya is good but he can't carry a team and isn't getting any younger.
