2. I think Buffalo should definitely be in the conversation for best hockey city in North America. We regularly sell out the First Niagara Center, we watch hockey on TV at larger ratings per capita than other markets larger than ours, etc. There's a reason why Buffalo was glossed Hockey Heaven.
The reason the atmosphere is sterile is because most people that are watching the games would prefer the marlies to win, but are basically only there to watch the Leafs' prospects.
