I was here my first year and we had a really, really, really good team and we made the playoffs. We had high expectations of making a good run at it. The building was during the playoffs, it was electric. And this is a market when football and that stuff stops, you get more fans coming back, and it’s heating up towards the spring. There’s no doubt in my mind it can work. It takes time to build up the fan base. It takes time to build up the grass roots of hockey in a city that maybe hasn’t had hockey for a while. If you just keep with it and keep growing the sport, I’m sure this is going to be, in years to come, a very strong market. That’s my thought.
