One of my good buddies is a ticket rep for the Hawks. He says that following bad years the renewal rate is about 70 percent in Seattle. But after good years (like we had last season obviously) it's closer to 90 percent. There are 50,000+ seats available, so even if the renewal rate is 90%+ as long as the waiting list is less than 5,000 seats you'll be in good shape.
