(Unfortunate for the ones who do love hockey who cant experience a "real game") IE. Sold out Bell Centre

On a side note, 17 players on the Panthers starting roster are Canadian, so why the hate for Canadian teams, Toronto has more Americans than any other team in the league I think
As you said, Hockey is Canada's passion, so like I didn't expect expo games to be like Yankee stadium I don't have unreasonable patriotic expectations here.

That said, hundreds of diehards had a blast serenading the habs fans as they sheepishly exited last game with god bless America, Et. Al.

On another note, one game recently the mike went out as the anthem singer sang, and the entire crowd sang the star spangled banner. It was awesome.
