updated league-wide attendance figures? I did a rough calculation that comes out to about a 2.5% increase over the last NHL season. The median's up about the same. The Isles, Chicago and Washington seem to still struggle. Nashville, Anaheim and Carolina improved, but two of those team are top teams and Anaheim had a decent season too - one would hope they would've done better. St. Louis fell off the map - their paying fan base doesn't seem to be too elastic.
I assume this means down/flat revenues (although above expectations, which would increase the cap number).
There was an ESPN report a little while back that statet that while yes, the attendance figures are slightly better, ratings are actually down from the prior year. Basically, it said that the league is doing slightly better, but not anywhere near the extent as Bettman would have you believe
What did you expect though? This league gets only higher national coverage than MLS. I really do not know if OLN was the way to go. Maybe they should have tried for the USA network.
