The economy is fine,our dollar is down against the USD.

This is great for our manufacturers and exporters but sucks for imports or anything paid in USD...like sports salaries.

I thought the Canadian Entertainment Tax was ridiculously high as well, and pro sports teams were subject to it.

I sometimes get the idea that the NHL braintrust wants Canada out of the picture.

Wrong...the Canadian economy never came close to what happened in the USA. Would you pay $200 plus per ticket to see any hockey game. All the Canadians in Florida are should get the credit for the attendence numbers.

Did you know it would take half a billion, that's Billion with a B, just to have a team there. Meaning Vegas will have to pay the NHL $500 millions just to have team recognized there. This will not pay for the stadium, the players, the gear, the promoting of the team just the rights to have a team there . Who would spend that much money just to have a hockey team in the desert?! I guess if you want to waste the money go for it but its still ridiculous.

Las Vegas would not exist if everybody spent their money sensibly.

Ya I know that's why the rink is packed all winter with Canadians. .....when I go to a game it's close to $500 for 2 good seats maybe a little less. So when your in Florida with so many Canadians in the winter ....what are they going to do? Right....go to a hockey game for cheap.....end result is good attendence

Around here, its common to hop the border to Buffalo to catch a game. Probably similar story with Windsor-Detroit.

I've even heard that when our dollar was above par it was sometimes cheaper to fly down to Florida, watch a game there, and fly back than it was to get tickets in Toronto. Not sure how many did a quick down and back just to watch the Leafs, but I bet it was more than 0.

Some Sabres fans almost pay for their season seats by just reselling the Leafs and Habs tickets.

Eh, half a billion dollars is not that much money here in vegas. Especially in a town full of casinos/hotels that make 100's of millions a year, individually. Also, there's already a brand new stadium/arena built. T-Mobile arena. Opened April this year.
