Coyotes Opener

Postby tfrizz on Fri Oct 04, 2013 10:15 am

Good turnout at Jobing.com Arena for the 'Yotes home opener last night - a sell out crowd of 17,125.

It sounds like the fans have been much more supportive of the team since the ownership issues had been settled, which is great to see.

meh. not much going on in Phoenix area last night. D'backs are done, Suns haven't started and TNF was Bills v. Browns. and it WAS the Rags. plenty of ex-New Yorkers living in the desert. let's see how they're drawing against Florida later in the season

I don't understand why people want markets to fail, especially after was the Pens went through.

Normally there's a ton of Rangers fans in the seats...hell, even the organizations are "friends" so to speak, they deal with each other all the time it feels like. I'm excited for the Desert Dogs though, I hope this keeps up.

don't you know? because Americans, particularly Americans in the South aren't worthy of the great Canadian game of ice hockey. :pop:

Neither do I. I want to see hockey grow and success worldwide and if things can turn around in places like Arizona, Florida, etc. then it spells nothing but good news for the game.

As long as the NHL stays around, I actually hope for minimal success. I like being one of 9000 people in the arena that seats 16000.

I want it to grow in america to the point that all of the best 32 markets are outside of canada and those teams move. That would be lulz.

It's one of things I don't get upset at the Commish over. Growing the game across the states I'm sure had something to do with finally get some TV action.

Maybe it didn't all work out and maybe say Seattle or KC would have been better expansion / move markets but hindsight is 20/20 and the situations were different - arena deals and so forth.

I would love for Phoenix and Florida to become stable franchises. And for the NYI to move to KC as I hate everything about the new Brooklyn sports scene.
