This isnt necessarily true. Wilkes-Barre your words " has 43k people". They average 8,000 a night, which is capacity. Albany, who is Colorado/Carolina's Minor league team plays in a market that is 2x as big as Wilkes-Barre, yet Albany only averages 3,000 a night. So there is a flaw in your hypothesis. Just because its a bigger market, doesnt mean more people will come. Anyway, no AHL team needs a home that has 18,000 seats. Nor could they afford to stay in a home with that many seats.
