Brooklyn’s Barclays Center just went public with their desire to end their relationship with the New York Islanders. The Islanders have the third worst attendance this year according to NHL statistics and the arena’s owner says it makes more money off of concerts and other events (they do have an NBA team, too).

At home, our Ottawa Senators rank 10th from the bottom when it comes to attendance which isn’t great. You’ve heard we’re in a “seat slump” from various news outlets and sports bloggers. The National Post has a great article on this topic: “Ottawa Senators could be in trouble if attendance doesn’t rise for big games in January” – CLICK HERE to see what they had to say.

On our KiSS Ottawa Facebook Page, we asked “What would encourage you to hit up a Sens game?”

“I’m a big sens fan but [it’s] not worth a month of groceries for one game.”

That comment came from Eric, while Jen and Angela aren’t happy with the restrictions placed on smokers. Most of the comments related directly to price, saying if the organization lowered the cost of tickets, parking and concessions they would be more inclined to fill those empty seats.
