I got some jackass talking about attendance as well...
All I said was "Stanley Cups are better than a sold out arena."
He smiled like an ******* and remained quiet until we reached the door.
But in reality the Rags hardly ever sellout. Ask some Rags season ticket holders and they will tell you on most nights there are plenty of empty seats over there.
Tickets are only hard to come by when they play us or other rivals.
Do they draw more than us on most nights, yes. But they are not a guaranteed sellout, Dolan buys the rest of the tickets so he can announce 18,200.
Hence, the "Dolan Sellout" that you will see referenced here on occasion which has been neglected in favor of "Soft Gomez" lately.
all things considered (and you need to take into account their current situation), I think this was by far the most well-behaved group i have seen in years.
It sucked walking out, but it wasn't god awful like some other times.
Other than the mooks in Hell's yeah the crowd wasn't too bad this time. I love when the Rangers suck, the d-bag bandwagoners don't show up.

(Oh, and I was going to say hello to you... Couldn't spot the McKay jersey, though.)
Row 5, seat 6. I wasn't in my seat for the 2nd though - I was chillin in a suite with some work folks and a vendor (mostly Ranger fans though so I left). The dancers and NJ came in and I was the only one wearing anything Devils - NJ pointed right at me and does the heart pounding thing with his fist, then points around and just threw up a WTF type shrug - pretty funny.
