at 5965 per game, and lets take that number at face value even though we know the actual attendance is likely half that number, in a city of millions, where the parent leafs are a stone's throw away, I'd say that's pretty terrible attendance. nobody cares about the ahl. no players aspire to play in the ahl. the league isn't on hockey's national radar whatsoever.

I was at the game in st.john's this past Friday. lots of empty seats. people trying to give away tickets free online, with no luck.
