My friend is going up to Shawinigan this year I will be interested to see if there is some kind of buzz in the city. I think the buzz is created moreso by the team that you have hosting it. I wouldn't under estimate the fact if a team loses in the playoffs early that hurts. If we put Windsor in the same situation and they lost early in the playoffs I bet that would hurt a lot.
I thought Rimouski was pretty impressive. Maybe it was just the Windsor fans that made it good, but it was a fantastic time and we were never bored. Sure, the beer tents were only 1/4 full, but the place had a buzz and you could feel it no matter where you went.
