1) FYI: The Preds lease requires that they report their attendance as accurately as possible. I do not know where the ESPN numbers come from, but If the same standards are used for all teams then someone would have to say the numbers are legit.
2) I highly doubt 3 to 4 K people are coming from Edmonton, or Minnesota on a Tuesday night to fill out the Predators attendance numbers. People can guess at how many Blues' fans were there last night but 1/2 would put it into the 8,000 people range. More likely 4-5 K just more drunken and vocal.
