Things look to be at least on par with where we were last year in terms of attendance. My latest fear, however, is that the Bridgestone Arena capacity may be what wears the welcome out. At 17,113, if we sold out every game, we would be ranked 18th in the league in terms of attendance. Currently, we are ranked 20th across all teams. http://espn.go.com/nhl/attendance
I guess my concern is, even if we get to the point of selling out every game and spending untold amounts of money, are we stil pinching pennies to keep guys like Suter, Rinne, and Weber around? Worse yet, does the 17,113 number hinder us?
