I bet Tuesday doesn't even top 15,000. I just checked and there are tons of seats left. The best $52 seats are in 211 row 20, and when I put end seating in 225 row 9 came up, meaning there will be tons of empty rows in the corners and ends. There are still $35 seats left in the first row they're available, row 16. Anyway, it's amazing to see how badly things have gotten. We're estatic over a crowd of 16,000, when ten years ago, a year after we missed the playoffs, we were averaging 17,000+. I remember meaningless weeknight games drawing over 16,000 back then and ANY weekend game selling out. Back then $90 seats were around $50 and sold out for every game and they had good promotional games such as six pack cooler bags, duffel bags, christmas ornaments, etc...

I don't think we'll sell out one game this year. Easter Sunday won't sellout because it's Easter Sunday! Last year we only drew 15,000 in a huge game vs. the Flyers. They won't have any special ceremony I bet, but if they do, the only way to see it will be to be there, because NBC sure wont show it.

What about the last home game in the swamp? I'm sure they'll have some kind of ceremony for that.


And why did it have to be on Easter Sunday :angry:

It seems like it was 20 years ago that the Devils averaged there best attendance in Doug Gilmour first full season as a Devil.

It's quite hard to hear you from the cellar of the Northwest Division.

Last time I checked, the Oilers have lost 7 of 9.

You are a clown. Just go back to your Oilers message board.

True, especially in the 2000-01 season, when they averaged 15,642 and the Oilers averaged 15,612 per game.

Actually the Devils outdrew Edmonton every year from 94-95 until 98-99. Let's not allow facts to stand in the way of the morons argument.
