Only 8,820, that's not even half of the arena full. I haven't really watched any of there games but there 3-3-0 on the season, have they really been that bad to alienate their fans or do they just not have any?

Everyone hates Dustin Byfuglien.

Attendance that low is just mind blowing. There will be more people at tomorrow's Griffins game.

Didn't Phoenix have a game last season with some astoundingly low attendance like 3500 or something?

Hockey failed in Atlanta before, I don't know why they thought it would thrive this time... that franchise needs to go elsewhere... it's a shame too, because they actually have a pretty exciting, young team...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

yes they did though Columbus fans dont care i lived there for 3 years and unless it has to do with buckeyes people in columbus want no part of it, especially if its hockey.
but the low attendance seems a bit discouraging anyone know if the average is down as a whole this year?

In my opinion, Atlanta has been the most likely franchise to move for the past year or two... and I think having no present and virtually no future after losing Kovalchuk and trading away picks and prospects for Byfuglien and friends will only speed the process.

When the two teams have something like one playoff appearance and no playoff wins in a combined 20 seasons of existence, I mean we're talking hard core futility, and the only traditional market that tolerates that level of suck and comes back is Maple Leafs fans.

I saw live segments from that game on NHL On The Fly and couldn't believe how empty sections near the glass were. It was a ghost town.

Uh, no.

They would get more attendance that way. Seriously the London Knights get around what the Thrashers got last night, thats pathetic

I don't think I've ever agreed with you so thoroughly on a point before... this could not be better stated.

Atlanta has never been a good sports town for attendance and support, period.

Not fair to single out hockey on this.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

How about moving Columbus to Yellowknife or Juneau? I'm in Athens (OH) and I see more LA Kings jerseys than CBJ. Strangely enough, the Kings' fans are very hockey-wise around here and I have no idea where they all came from.

Agreed. The Braves playoff games both had lots of empty seats in the upper deck.
