Awesome.

Hopefully the crowds will keep coming to watch the current "mortal" version of the team...

No way Tampa sold out every game , you can see all the empty seats . And Calgary selling for 112% ? They sell stand-up tickets ?

Kinda surprising the Sens draw more than the Leafs also

It is very common in the US for large banks of seats to be empty, but sold nonetheless. Many seats are part of corporate packages, lasting the entire calendar year, for NHL, NBA, concerts, events, etc. Similar to corporate boxes. During the regular season, a game can be a sellout and have 14,000 people in the building. The seat's empty, but paid for nonetheless. This is a significant portion of the arena breakdown in Washington.

Corporate sales make for quieter buildings, but stable sales that are independent of a team's record, therefore promoting greater financial stability.

I received an e-mail from the team to our company (we have corporate tickets):

"In spite of injuries to 3 of our top 4 scorers, we still remain at the top of our division and fighting for first overall in the NHL. Hopefully our injured players return soon and we can return to our winning ways…and take advantage of having 7 of our next 9 games at home. (All seven of which are Sold Out!!) Thanks to our great fans, we continue to have record crowds…our average attendance is now over 19,400."

"In other hockey news; the whole country is a buzz with our juniors, unexpectantly, winning Gold in the World Junior Championships. Speaking of juniors…a great, National event, is coming to the Corel Centre- Wednesday, January 18th- the CHL Top Prospects game. It is a Nationally televised game which showcases the top junior prospects/ future NHL stars. The 2 teams are coached by Don Cherry & Bobby Orr."

Well, Toronto does have three more home games. These average things are better left till the end of the season.

We're supposed to need Leaf fans to fill our half-empty arena.

Whether or not we finish ahead of the Leafs doesn't really matter. It's just nice to see we're in the same vicinity.

As long as the remaining cap room is spent (something like $4million) by the end of the season, I won't be complaining.

1. Montreal (21,273)......100.0%
5. Ottawa (19,477)........105.5%
6. Toronto (19,384).......103.1%
7. Calgary (19,289)........112.4%
8. Vancouver (18,630)....101.1%
15. Edmonton (16,824).....98.4%

Nice to see that all 6 Canadian teams are doing great at the gate, although I doubt it is a surprise to anyone.

I should be in the DC area for work in early April, I think I'll go check out a Caps game while I'm there!
