Actually, the stats are better than you say. The games listed aren't just home games, they're all the games. The smallest crowd was 17,728, on October 19th, against Colorado. They had over 20k about ten times. 3 of those were against Montreal, 2 Toronto, 2 Pittsburgh, 1 NYI, 1 NYR and 1 Buffalo. That's just the regular season. Playoff games, 7 of 10 were over 20k, the other two were just shy at 19611 and 19636. It's no Montreal (21 273 every game), but it's not bad. As for ticket prices...I dunno, I don't count standing room (that's the 28$ ones) and the rest of it seems too complicated. GM zone's 1, 2, and 3? Molson zone's? Upperbowl? However, personally, I don't go to many games. Partially the price, partially the entertainment value. If I go to a 67's game, I see everything going on, even from the "worst" seats. But an NHL game, the worst seats make the players look like lego. -shrug-, that's just how I feel. I'd rather cough up the extra money to get the 2nd level seats, but I wouldn't do it in Ottawa. Montreal, yes, Ottawa, no. Toronto, you'd have to pay me to step foot in the city, let alone the arena (yes, that's an exaggeration/joke).
