I hope it can get back to the days in the early/mid 90's where there WERE 10-12,00 in the arena.
    In this economy you won't see that unless they give the tickets away and maybe even reimburse attendees for gas mileage People are simply cutting back where they can.

    I went to one Devils game this year, and attendance wasn't even close to that. Can't remember if that was the Atlantic City weekend or when Union was playing Colgate; may have been the latter.

    One other thing to consider: about 20 bucks per game. I realize that's what the price also is in Syracuse (not sure about other locations), but that may also have something to do with it. But yea, a $20-$25 deal for Devils and RPI/Union, you could probably get a good number into the arena.

    BTW, as a point of comparison, when RPI/Union played a NC game in Halloween of 2009, it sold out. Also, during the first two Governor's Cups, over 4000 attendance. The third Governor's Cup did not give an attendance for the RPI/Union game. I realize that RPI doesn't sell out the Union game (of course we have more than double the capacity), but that's not to say people probably wouldn't come out.

    Because #26 needs the revenue. Although it'd be interesting if they made it a game at the TUC with the night-cap (or game before) be a Devils game, and have some kind of 2-fer deal. Heck, it'd really be something if they could time it with the Devils playing Springfield: York vs. Kincaid!

    This is based upon 1 October for the start of next season.

    That is the day that an exhibition game is supposedly scheduled.
