from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,
The Ducks' general manager acknowledged that although he has "changed the culture" by signing Scott Niedermayer, trading for Chris Pronger and assembling a team that's swift and smart, he hasn't triggered a box-office boom. The Ducks, who set an NHL record by earning at least one point in each of their first 16 games, averaged 14,832 fans over their first 12 home games, 86.5% capacity of the Honda Center.
