    Until they improve the on-ice and/or the in-game experience, we won't be selling out

    Winnipeg is a bigger city than Ottawa. If you count in Gatineau, you have to also talk about having to cross the river on dinky one-lane bridges. Ottawa is also more spread out, with a river/canal making the trip longer in some cases.

    But, yes, Ottawa is not a "put your money where your mouth is" kind of town.

    They are probably losing market share. How could they not, with the iPhone out there.

    Agree with everything except the outrageous comment that 'peg is bigger than Ottawa. That's just silly. U can't be meaning area wise either....
