A recent article in Inside Hockey by Timothy Gassen had some interesting numbers from Coyotes President Doug Moss. http://www.insidehockey.com/columns/446 The Coyotes announced tickets distributed in '05-'06 of 15,582. Calculating the numbers, and presuming the best case scenario that Phoenix is only comping 46 tickets per game to their players this season (as per the CBA) 14,622-46=14,572 14,572/1.12= 13,011 paid attendance in '05-'06. 15,582-13,011= 2,571 2,571 complimentary tickets were given away per game in '05-'06 in the best case scenario for the Coyotes, which leaves only 13,011 paid tickets per game. wow, quite a difference from the announced "attendance". Presuming the Coyotes are distributing a similar amount of complimentary tickets that the Predators are this season (1500): 14,622-1500=13,122 13,122/1.12= 11,716 paid attendance in '05-'06 15,582-11,716 = 3,866 If the Coyotes are distributing a similar amount of freebies that the Preds are this season (1500), that would mean 3,866 free tickets were given away for every game in '05-'06, but this is just speculation.
