The fireworks are going off-In Minnesota this 4th of July as the Minnesota Wild go on a spending spree they hope will get them back to the playoffs. For the NJ Devils this 4th of July fizzled out like a lady finger.
The Minnesota Wild announced the signing of the now former Devil AND free agent defensman Gary Suter to almost exact 13 year contracts worth 98 million reasons why to go to a non play
I just checked out the latest attendance figures in the AHL and I noticed the Albany Devils are last in the league in attendance.
They're only averaging 2,818 fans per game. That's over 600 less than the 2nd worst team - Abbotsford.
Why isn't anyone watching minor league hockey here in the Capital Region?
