A short update to the multi-tab excel sheet that details attendance for each team stretching all the way back to the 1989-1990 season dubbed “The Ruiner.”

For the first time over half the league hit 100% or more (due to standing room options) attendance with 17 teams topping the mark.  That beat the previous record of 14 team set last season, which beat the previous record of 12 teams set the season before…  Yes, the league is doing quite well, despite what doom and gloom stories from Phoenix might have you believe.  The Centenials by season:

  • 1990 – Toronto, Chicago, Philadelphia
  • 1991 – Chicago, Toronto
  • 1992 – Chicago, Los Angeles
  • 1993 – Chicago
  • 1994 – Chicago
  • 1995 – Tampa Bay, Chicago, St. Louis, Anaheim
  • 1996 – New York Rangers
  • 1997 – Florida, Colorado
  • 1998 – New York Rangers, Phildelphia
  • 1999 – Philadelphia, Colorado, New York Rangers
  • 2000 – Toronto, Colorado, Dallas, New York Rangers
  • 2001 – Toronto, Minnesota, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Colorado, New York Rangers
  • 2002 – Toronto, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Colorado, Dallas
  • 2003 – Minnesota, Toronto, Colorado, Dallas
  • 2004 – Edmonton, Toronto, Minnesota, Colorado, Detroit, Vancouver
  • 2006 – Tampa Bay, Toronto, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Calgary, Colorado, Montreal, Vancouver
  • 2007 – Toronto, Minnesota, Tampa Bay, Buffalo, Calgary, Detroit, Edmonton, Montreal, New York Rangers, Vancouver
  • 2008 – Buffalo, Toronto, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, New York Rangers, Vancouver
  • 2009 – Chicago, Minnesota, Toronto, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Vancouver
  • 2010 – Chicago, Toronto, Minnesota, Vancouver, Pittsburgh, San Jose, Philadelphia, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal
  • 2011 – Pittsburgh, Chicago, Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, Philadelphia, Washington, Boston, Edmonton, Montreal, San Jose, St. Louis
  • 2012 – Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Toronto, Washington, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Jose, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Winnipeg, Boston
  • 2013 – Chicago  Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Vancouver, Buffalo, Toronto, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Boston, Calgary, Detroit, Edmonton, Montreal, New York Rangers, Winnipeg, San Jose

Note that because of things like standing room, renovations that weren’t documented, and errors in gate reports the above should best be regarded as “mostly accurate.”
