OT: Something is seriously wrong with hockey

When it's Steve Yzerman's retirement ceremony/game, in Detroit, playing the best team in the league, and Joe Louis is littered with empty seats...something is seriously, seriously wrong.

It was packed during the ceremony. The game didn't start until like 8:30.. people have families, and want to get to bed before midnight. I would attribute it to that only.

It's been empty since mid 1st...people don't leave at 8:30. Seat fillers.

If you were watching the ceremony, tons of people had those special guest passes for the Yzerman ceremony.. maybe there was a celebration elsewhere in the arena. I'm just speculating, but Detroit has pretty good attendance for most games that I've watched on Centre Ice.

Yeah I have seen alot of Detriot games where it is sold out, and there are still alot of seats that are empty. Alot of it has to do with other sports teams playing, or season ticket holders not that interested in going to the game.
