It Is Not All Good

from Stephen Brunt of the Globe and Mail,
All of those magnificent attendance numbers cited by commissioner Gary Bettman of late can't hide crowds in some of the weaker American markets that resemble the familiar gathering of family and friends. The greatly improved esthetics apparently haven't moved the NASCAR crowd, nor were they enough to inspire supporters of the Ottawa Senators to fill the Corel Centre when the archrival Maple Leafs arrived for the first time this season on Monday. n Buffalo the other night, after a massive radio advertising blitz pushing cheap tickets deep into Ontario's hockey-mad Golden Horseshoe, only 12,000 people turned out to see the home team take on the Pittsburgh Penguins, with both Mario Lemieux and the saviour, Sidney Crosby, in their lineup.
