As far as who gets the captaincy next year, I think literally everything surrounding this franchise is going to hinge and turn on that first round pick. The outcome of this upcoming draft is like the installation of a rudder on an otherwise rudderless ship.

You are going to see things start happening quickly once that 1st round pick is selected. That’s the first piece.

Yes the arena would be full a lot if they had fantilli but judging by the attendance most nights this year people want to attend regardless and with or without fantilli I bet it doesn’t change that much

The arena is filled with 1) a season ticket holder base, 2) casual fans, 3) group sales. When you have a better team, you can increase the first two groups without such a reliance upon discounted tickets in the third category. Improving the on-ice product increases your profitability.

If he's a possible first overall and he's in his third year here at that point you can bet even people who don't watch or follow hockey will know who he is. I think it will create a buzz around here we haven't seen especially if the team is a threat to win the mem cup.

Obviously a good team will help the first two things you mentioned but I think they will keep going up regardless doesn’t matter if we draft Adam or one of the other top guys

Totally.

Plus, didn't we learn a few years ago that the Dogs don't actually turn a profit until the playoff games. If true, the further they get into the playoffs the better. I star player could bring a long playoff run.

First tiebreaker, whether it be for 9th or 10th or Home Ice in the Tiebreaker game is WINS (regulation and overtime)

Currently,...

North Bay - 17 W

Kingston - 16 W

Niagara - 15 W

That was certainly true at The Jack. Though lease and revenue deals are different, they should be making afew dollars at The Meridian Centre before playoffs. Though, any playoff revenue is a bonus. This is also due to salary structure, but that is an old...touchy subject (duck and cover).
