Attendance was 1500...is that a mistake? Ugly if true

Attendance 1,538? Maybe a misprint.

Anyway, the Pats assistance coach was on radio after the game saying that was the worst game of season for Pats and they should be embarrassed. 20-02-04 record

Unfortunately 1,500 is likely not a mistake. They averaged 1,957 per game last season, I guess that is why there is constant talk of a sale of the team.

I don't understand how a major junior franchise can continue existing with attendance like that.....1500...yes that's been par for the course for some time down in Cranbrook.

According to the WHL website attendance 1538. How long will this franchise be able to survive with this kind of support. Good comeback by the Pat's maybe took the Ice lightly? Still a win, looking forward to the home games this weekend.

I attended Vancouver Giants they play in a rink smaller than Estevans and it was 2800.

1500 fans makes you wonder just how long they can exist there. There has been lots of talk about wanting to get a team on the Island so as to make things easier on Victoria. Winnipeg has been in the conversation as well a couple spots in Alberta. Penticton was once rumoured as well.

The pats came off a rather pedestrian BC trip and have been guilty of nonchalant play much of this year. The fortunate thing is that they found ways to win, and probably a number of times shouldn't have. Padding your stats against poor teams and not having played many good teams this season so far are big reasons for the record.

The pats are still not good defensively and turn the puck over all the time. Their goals against is over 3 and goaltending stats are way down the list in the WHL. They have only played one game against MJ, one against Swift Current, and none against Brandon. You better hope you can score if you can't play defence. Down the stretch and into the playoffs your ranking means nothing. Last season Erie (#2 CHL rated) got knocked out in the 3rd round of the OHL, and Victorian (rated #5 CHL) got knocked out in the 2nd round. Both by teams below them.
