    So when was the last time the AHL Finals series ended after the NHL Cup Finals?

    It's generally lined up that way for a long time now.

    Congrats to the Checkers! 3 of their 4 wins in the Finals were by the score of 5-3.

    The Wolves averaged a whopping 6396 for the 3 games of the finals, a total of 19189 over 3 games. Disgraceful. The Wolves and their "fans" should hang their heads in shame over this.

    Cleveland. Who averaged 8000 for it's 4 playoff games this year, not one of them on a Friday or Saturday (2 Tuesdays, a Thursday, and a Sunday afternoon). Who sold out it's last game in the finals, 19,600, in 2016 and drew 12,900 in Game 3, on a Monday evening. But that's completely irrelevant, just a deflection. If Toledo, which has a metropolitan area of 608,000 can put over 8,500 a game in each of it's 3 Kelly Cup finals games this year, then Chicago, with a metropolitan area of 9,533,000 should damn well be drawing better than 6400 a game. And a 1/2 fill building on a Saturday night is just plain awful. At 15, almost 16 times the population of Toledo they should be outdrawing an ECHL team. No Blackhawks, no Bulls, Cubs are so-so, Sox are bad, no the area isn't caught up in some other team's fever. So what's the big excuse this time?

    I think there’s probably more to do in Chicago than watch AHL hockey.

    The Wolves regular season average was 7929. Their playoff average was 3385, a 43% drop off. Their high attendance game was 8535, their low was 1817. And there are lots of other things to do in every AHL city, but in a market that big, no matter how you want to argue it, that's not good at all.

    Are you new? AHL playoff attendance is always lower than regular season.

    Why are you being an ass? Ok they didn't draw like you think they should have,I'm sure that, should you want to, you can send in any ideas you have. But having said that...how many fans were in your building on saturday night for the hockey game? Worry about your team...that should keep you plenty busy.

    AHL regular season attendance is built on group sales, which are essentially non existent come playoff time due to the lack of lead time on scheduling.

    I've been here longer than you. And not every market falls off so big. If a team can only fill 1/3 of their arena for a FINALS game, 2 of them, especially a 25 year old franchise in a major market that is giving free parking to all games, then that is a very bad thing. Sorry if facts offend some people. The truth is sometimes painful.

    But most of them do. It's not a new thing or something that needs to be pointed out. They drew around 2,500 less in 3 games than they did the last time they were in the Calder Cup Finals. It's not a big deal. The franchise managed to get over that 11 years ago and is still going strong. Hamilton only managed 5,683 for their first Calder Cup Finals game in 2007.

    Just seems like you're trolling.

    I presented facts. Others used deflection and justification. Those who can't accept the facts try to spin them into what fits their own narrative and hide behind that.

    It's not good but let's keep in mind the regular season attendance numbers are somewhat inflated.
    Comps, group sales, and such play a pretty big part in those figures.
