Last week were the ticket renewals; this week a nice note from Chris Summers, signed by the team.   Two key messages were found therein:

1. A Plea to Renew.  Sensitive to the economic conditions, included was encouragement from Summers to re-up this season, who acknowledged the situation out there: “We realize that in this economy many of you may be experiencing some stress financially.”

2. Getting Stronger.  Summers highlighted some activity from this spring: “We have just completed a very demanding voluntary off-season workout program.  I can safely say that all of our returning players have improved their strength…”

The note was a nice touch.  Hockey fans are a dedicated bunch, but you’ve got to have a bunch of ticketholders out there facing difficult times and don’t view tickets as a must have.  Toss in the rise of the basketball team and a few fans might choose to take their dollars to Crisler.
