New arena, new fans? Winnipeg has a new 15,000 seat arena opening in November downtown. Will this attract new fans?

It will attract WAY MORE FANS. The novelty of playing in a new building will eventually wear off, but the fact that there is no NHL hockey being played this year will dramatically increase attendance in EVERY AHL city.

My guess would be that the Moose average 11,000 fans per game in 2004-05, up from 6,900 last year.
