If you need tickets there are still thousands available.

Raleigh

Time to move the team to a place who could support it, like Charlotte...or Mexico City.

I wonder how many people who are not showing up to the game because Cam Ward is out or they miss Erik Cole or Chad LaRose or whoever the **** are going to be demonizing Peter Karmanos in the offseason when he doesn't want to spend to the cap in a city that has 15,000 people show up to watch a first place team play after two dominating home performances? 100% of them, probably.

Yeah, I'm really starting to feel like the post-lockout promo blitz was intended at least in part to take our eye off the ball with regard to attendance figures. There's no good reason this game should be lightly attended.

I also find it very fishy that upper levels are largely empty but the lower bowls are 90% full. There are literally places in the upper bowl where you can get 40+ seats together.

How many of those lower bowl seats are being comp'd or discounted?

How much actual revenue is being pulled in?

Not enough is my guess. Oh well, at least the new TV contract kicks in next year.

Gah I wish I was in town. Ridiculous for this game to have so many available tickets.

After the hot start, I was starting to think I was the only one boycotting ticket purchasing this year. It appears that I'm not.

Stubhub has super cheap tickets. Sideline premier tickets for $12.

It doesn't take a "boycott". This team has always had bad attendance and it's well past time to question the viability of the market. I know I sound like a ******** Canadian mad that there's no NHL team in my town of 8,000 people in Saskatchewan, but it's depressing to realize that this team will have to spend money to ice a competitive roster and then see attendance like the game against Buffalo followed by what will be another sadly attended game...with the team 1st in the division with three straight home wins at that. If people aren't showing up for games now, what will they show up for?

Be my first game this year. Looking forward to it. I was so burned out on going to the arena, I just stopped buying season tickets last year. Anything I should try?? New beer selections? food??

Nope. Just the usual type of comments by the usual suspects trying to be the center of attention.

Wasn't planning on going, but was given some because the owners couldn't go.

So I'll be there to watch Montreal dominate the Canes and justify the decision of everyone who decided not to go.

If Caniac Coach would wise up and come to Brier Creek, I could go more often.

Might have something to do with a combination of ACC/College basketball heating up toward March Madness, compressed schedule (some might not be able to go to so many games a week), expiring promo deals (vouchers, etc.), some apathy settling in, weekday game, less local Habs fans than other teams like TOR, BUF, PHI, etc.

We've had a good start to the season and I think we'll be okay from an attendance standpoint. The question of how much REAL revenue the team is realizing is a very good one. I think not a lot when everything is considered.
