They can do what the Giants and I believe the Nets now do and have the food service guys deliver the food to them instead of having to go upstairs to eat.

wouldnt that be nice!

Only one other team has the center ice lower bowl seats as some sort of club seats. The other team is the Panthers. In the end, it's not a huge deal either way though.

I think the maple leads have their center sections as club seats too. I believe their "club" though is underneath the stands with no view of the ice.

It's about level of interest. When I go to a game I sit in club seats but I get to the game early so I can eat and be in my seat at the start of the game and then between periods I go back to the lounge for stuff and then return to the seats. Sometime a little late. I see others that get there at the start of the game and spend the first and second period in the lounge eating an watching TV. If I am going to eat and watch the game on TV I might as well stay home.

 

 

As for noise level and attendance this team hasn't built much confidence in the fans. They, the Devils, don't put on the ice the best winning lines so as a fan one doesn't know what they are going to get. Get the first goals so what; be up by 3 and then lose; goalie issues and bad coaching and so on. Every time I see Gionta, Sestito and Janssen being our 4th line I am pissed and quiet.

seeing as how that line plays less than 7 minutes a game I sure hoe your screaming your ass off for the other 53 minutes.

What a ridiculous reason for the empty seats.

devils can thank that sell out on the holidays people being home some may have gotten tickets as gifts people being off from work etc. ... but i knew it was going to be a sellout right away just be looking at the secondary market there was nothing decent available

Well this is when the attendance usually goes up anyways.  January on, the attendance jumps up almost 1000 people per game on average.

If they keep playing the way they are playing the attendance should drop January on.

Awesome atmosphere the past two games, I see the same happening for Chicago and Philly coming up. Nice couple weeks of attendance, hopefully it continues. Being able to get that win vs. the Penguins at home was a good step toward that continuing.

Snow storm may play a big role in whether Fri is a sellout or not.

Snow will be done in the morning, but the cleanup not so sure.

 

One one side this is supposed to be the biggest snowstorm of the season yet so it might take a while to clean up the roads in time for travel to be safe.  On the other hand the services have had a good 3-4 days to prepare for this so they might be able to do it in time.

 

I personally think the roads should for the most part be fine.  If its still not good, you always have the train option.

I read about the same for where I am in Hunterdon County. It'll be clear on the interstates, highways and County Routes a couple hours after the snow stops. If you live in the sticks, you might have some issues in the morning.

Didn't look like a real sellout unless a ton of people just didn't come because of the snow.  The roads looked worse than they were, I didn't have an issue driving at all from Morris County and back.

It's about wins and losses not sellouts

You may or may not be in the wrong thread.

i thought the same thing.. the uppers and balconies looked real packed but the lowers there were a lot of empty seats still.. i thought it wouldve been completely packed being there were less then 100 seats available on stubhub.. dont know how they calculate their sellouts but im guessing the suits are obviously not included in that?
