Mike Gordon offers up various strategies of how the Wolves have positioned themselves in the major market of Chicago. The Wolves have the metropolitan area to itself while the NHL's Blackhawks are on strike, but Gordon thinks that's not a good thing, especially long term. Gordon talks about how the team markets itself, trying to make itself "cool" to the younger population, without spending into oblivion on premium giveaways, as well as consciously keeping the play on the ice from being hindered by group or promotional activities. Gordon discusses the issues surrounding how the Wolves' price point of $9 has led to its success, especially in selling out $50 glass seats.
