Maybe the fighting will get the fans back in the seats. The Red Wings' opener had only 17,000+ fans in an arena that seats almost 20k. It was the first opener not sold out in about 15 years. Also, the Wings didn't sell out a single playoff game last year...Sure, the strike didn't have an effect on the fans, right.... If "Hockeytown" becomes "Ghostown" for hockey fans, what does it mean for the rest of the league? Of course the Detroit economy combined with recent success of the Tigers and *gasp* Lions probably took a toll too, but to not sell out an opener is horrendous.
