-TO is subsidizing the rest of the league. Stratospheric ticket prices!
-If Phoenix had to be bailed out when they have better numbers, then Dallas is in BIG trouble.
That can't be the right Devils average as during "classic" games, which most are, there are only 2 ticket sections bellow 61 bucks and they're priced at $37 and $27 and even for our cheapest games, again only 2 sections below 51 bucks.

Once again. Some teams have standing room only seats, but some states don't allow for SRO tix. so there attendance is locked at seating capacity. Others might not count the SRO tix.
i like it when people bash the ottawa market when it's right in the middle of the two largest markets in the NHL (montreal & toronto) that have years of history and tradition on them.
the fact that ottawa's fanbase has been split between these two teams doesn't help either, but in the 20 years ottawa's been in the league, it has made huge inroads in reclaiming a new generation of fans.
pretty low blow for fans from toronto and montreal to even try to colour ottawa as a bad fanbase. no other canadian market has had to deal with that kind of competition. ottawa's always been consistently at the top of the attendance rankings year over year, save a few years where there was an ownership & debt crisis.
Seriously. I always laugh when people on here say Ottawa is a bad hockey city because of the number of Leafs and Habs (and a few other teams) fans show up to their games. Um, hello, the majority of them live in Ottawa. The hometown team may not be the most popular in the city by a significant margin, but they're all hockey fans. Take a look at the two CHL franchises in the Ottawa area, and then the ones in Toronto (yes I know, no one mentioned Toronto and hockey city, etc) and get back to me on the whole hockey city label. It's more than just the NHL that counts when it comes to a hockey city.
The "What's up" with Buffalo is that they've only included the Helsinki game and three of the four games in Buffalo in their total, yet still divided it by 5. More reasons not to trust ESPN for hockey stats... math fail. They have them at 69,419 after five games, missing a full-house (18,690) from home somewhere in there. They're actually at 88,109 for five games... including 13K in Helsinki as a home date.
I honestly don't believe the Canucks sellout every game and that the owners buy up the un-sold seats just to keep the sellout streak alive.
There are always a bunch of tickets available on game day that get released from the allotment of player/media/whatever tickets. I guarantee not all of those tickets sell. I see empty seats in the building all the time and I have a hard time believing all of those are season ticket holders that did not attend the game.
does anyone outside of florida care about florida?
but they'll get sellouts in winnipeg
hmmmm interesting, and tampa bay had good attendance against the jets
Halloween in Miami is ridiculous. There are about ten thousand things that are more entertaining to do and only that one night that are above a Panthers/Jets game. I also highly doubt it was only 2k people.
