The number on casual or non-hardcore fans has increased and marketing has played a big part in that but the club or it's success nor lack of, doesn't mean that much to those people.
Even with that questionable claim about free broadcasting (semifinals at home, if you're a fan who's not financially broke, you go to the arena), the numbers are clearly lower than in KHL at a similar stage of the playoffs. And by the way, the matches were broadcast for free on delay, around midnight. Don't think it affected the attendance numbers that much.

it's mainly a vocal minority who are against the KHL. If you look at the attendance numbers from the past years, the vast majority are on board with the new league, although this season saw a slight decrease (less than 10 %) due to a fairly uninspiring team. Oh, and according to the all knowing Jatkoaika, Jokerit marketing is crap.

Over 11k in attendance for Dynamo today. Less than a thousand short of a sellout, then again, I guess a lot of boxes weren't taken again.

It's not questionable at all, it was evident at every arena back then. Hockeynight games on MTV3 rarely had sold out crowds (and they were live), even in playoffs, unless it was the finals. Nelonen aired the some playoff games and finals live. Finns are very stingy and lazy sports fans.

You might want to check the poll section at Jatkoaika, it was very heavily towards returning to Finnish league. A couple of weeks ago the poll (Where would you prefer to see Jokerit play) had 23% Jokerit fans playing in KHL, 77% in Liiga. For non-Jokerit fans the numbers were 37,5% and 62,5% respectively.

If you really think that late night reruns have a significant effect on attendance figures, then you're clueless. Besides, even the games which were not broadcast free at late hours had significantly smaller attendance numbers than similar games at KHL. End of story.

Also, why are you looking at some random polls at Jatkoaika, when the reality, aka KHL attendance figures, clearly shows that fans prefer KHL over Liiga?

E: I checked the poll and you cannot be serious, it had less than 50 votes from Jokerit fans. Talking about an adequate sample size...

We were talking about Jokerit-JYP semifinal games and those were not broadcast live on free channels, only on Nelonen Pro. I remember, because I purchased that package just for those games.

Ok. Doesn't matter though, even the games which were not broadcast live on free tv have generally had less spectators when compared to KHL Jokerit in the playoffs.

True, and then the novelty wore off. Same might happen with KHL of course, you never know.

Looks like a packed house in Moscow.
