This is a big gamble for the owners of the Wild! Last year they spent $56 mil; this year they will up against the cap at $70 mil. That is an extra $14 mil or so...and, according to their owner, they are not making money...and he attributes that to the players' salaries!
The economic reality in Minnesota these days is not pretty. This is a big gamble that Parise and Suter will fill the arena every night. We'll see.
I'd be interested in what the numbers look like (how many more tickets are sold at what price for full house in Fargo).
I'm NOT interested in doing the research however.
I'm actually hungover on a Wednesday, doesn't happen often.
Don't feel up to a run today, don't think coffee would be a great idea at this point.
Lord forgive me.... damn martinis.
Anywho, the numbers must make sense because twas the owners who pushed for these twin contracts.
Do they now raise ticket prices in Minny?
