At the suggestion of a moderator over on the US-Finland thread I've decided to start thread discussing attendance. Tonight's attendance for the above game was 14,093 with possibly half of the crowd Canadian. Although the tournament is pretty much only known by die hards in the US I was a surprised considering Buffalo is a pretty good hockey market. However, another reason brought up might be the price gouging. According to some Sabres fans the tickets ranged from $65-$80. It looks like the organizers correctly knew that a lot of Canadians would be coming across the border. Unfortunately it migh dissuade a lot of Buffalo fans from buying tickets to a tournament they know little about. Hopefully the word quickly spreads and we see the US sellout by the time the reach the semi-finals. The US should win the remaining of their games in a weak division creating greater interest. Of note - Canada v Russia was close to a sellout with 18,690. Germany v Swizterland got 13,629 Sweden v Norway had 1,320 at the university rink.
