Grand Rapids would support a NHL franchise better than Atlanta, Phoenix or Miami.

Official numbers out of Phoenix tonight. 4-2 Coyotes get the win. Attendance at the Jobing.com Arena: 6,706

no joke... I am surprised he isn't paying seat fillers to go to games in Phoenix. Just to keep up appearances, ya know? ;)

Maybe it was a Halloween promotion: if you came dressed up as an empty seat, your ticket was half price.

Haha, I think Bob Mackenzie called it friends at family night at Jobbing. I think Jobbing.com should use their resume database and hire some fans to make Bettman happy.

From what little I could see of the seats from the broadcast it was utterly ridiculous. I've seen better crowds at Mooseheads games for crying out loud.

So they'd GIVE you money? :P

Hockey can and does work in the South when you have a winning team and reasonably priced tickets. The Louisiana IceGators in the booming metropolis of Lafayette (I consider myself pretty good with geography and I'd have a hard time finding Lafayette, LA on a map) averaged 11K+ paid attendance for a couple years in the late 90s when they were flagrantly violating the ECHL salary cap, and consequently winning games left and right.

ouch...

Just driving the point home that these teams need to migrate to the great white north... as already covered, give Winnipeg their Jets back and move Atlanta to Quebec to start...

as a side note, I really miss this jersey:

I think at the end of the day, it's not the south that's the issue, it's the markets they chose... I don't think they did their due diligence before putting teams down there - Tampa Bay, Dallas and Carolina(hate them by the way, so it sucks to admit it) have all been very viable markets, but South Beach, Phoenix and Atlanta were poor choices and even with winning teams, would just be fads anyway with no sustainable fanbase and as soon as the teams started losing again, the fans would leave (see Florida after making it to the SCF and losing all their fans within 2 years after)

The fact of the matter is, more teams belong in Canada one way or another and it simply makes poor business sense to keep trying to cram a square peg in a round hole, when you have markets foaming at the mouth to pay obscene amounts of money for your product that you're trying to sell to people who don't want it... as the old saying goes - go where the money is.

A) An NHL team isn't going to be able to get away with cap-breaking
B) Said salary cap is meant to even the playing field among teams. Most teams bounce around all over the place in terms of performance now, if having a winning team is the make-or-break element of a team's success you're essentially admitting inconsistency at best.

The League should consider moving this team to Calgary; they're dying to have an NHL team.

Funny you say that, Darren Dreger just retweeted this:

BizNasty2point0 morning folks. Guess we actually had more then 5000 fans for our game. Didn't realize it was dress like a seat night. Close to a sell out.

Yup - pretty neat/unique jersey.

For what it's worth - if a team were to move back to Quebec City they could still play in the old Colisee Pepsi (capacity 15,176) for a few seasons until a new arena was built.

They could - but they won't.

Seems to me Bettman will delay a move to Canada for as long as he can. Right now, all he's got to keep a team out of Quebec City is the arena issue.
