Those Nashville numbers have to be discouraging to the club. The team is in the top half of the Western Conference from day one, and for a lot of the season was still contending with the Wings for the division title, and they couldn't average more than 15,000?

On the flipside, the fact Minnesota and to a lesser extent Columbus draw what they do shows why they were the best expansion choices in years.

Columbus has to start getting a winning product there — fast. In their first two seasons, they sold out 75% of their games, and attendance has steadily declined since then.

I find it funny that Edmonton's 2004 number is higher than the seating capacity at Rexall place (16,839). Even when it was higher, it was only around 17,100.
