Is there a contest?

CBJ fans have NEVER had anything to cheer for in their entire existence. They even blew the draft lottery. 11 seasons, zero playoff wins and only 4 playoff games. For the 1st 8 years, CBJ and Edmonton had pretty similar numbers, with CBJ being ahead a few of those years.

Give the BJ's a cinderella playoff run and maybe things are a bit different. As it stands, over 11 years they have averaged 500 less fans a night than the Oil. In fact, they seem slightly masochistic to me to still be showing up in the numbers they do.
