Small Crowd In Kansas City

from Jim Baumbach of Newsday,

The Islanders came here hoping to be barreled over with support from a city supposedly desperate for its own NHL team. And how did the people of Kansas City react? With one huge, collective yawn.

The support for the preseason game against the Kings was so poor that every upper-deck section was blocked off by huge black curtains. You know, to block the many, many rows of empty seats.

Some threat, eh?

You know what this half-empty arena looked like? Any other Islanders home game.
