Atlanta's Attendance Last Night

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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...

Didn't Columbus have 9,000 and a change last night?

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.

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.

Savard Kovalchuk Heatley and now they have.....

Kane, Bogosian, Little, Slater, Oduya, Enstrom...

am I the only one here that thinks they have a good, exciting, young team?!?

I do, but they lack the superstar power that draws crowds. Kane is the closest thing to being a superstar and he's still a few years away from being that.

You're dead on when it comes to this topic...

I 100% agree with you and mindfly on this, I think those teams would thrive today in the Canadian locations. Not to mention the economics behind it, not only are tickets not selling in current locations, there not selling at about a fraction of the price they'd sell for in the canadian market (which isn't soo lousy these days)
