    Nice to see Tampa way up there.

    Almost 2 thirds of league are near sell out every game. PRetty solid

    Montreal at 20,209 !!! It’s an error because Montreal is always full attendance at 21 273 for many years.

    U need to look again cause it as capacity 21 273. The NHL should look at these numbers and get the head out of there ass and give Canada another team. 9 American teams are under 90%, move Phoenix to Quebec doesn’t matter who buys them they can’t seem to get the fans

    @George I corrected the error after Stephan made his comment.

    We need to see how many free tickets were distributed on average. In Tampa it is thousands per game. Nyi too.
