I don't care if we're up 3, or down 3. This is the team we love and support, so support them. As was stated before, loud, supportive fans can have an effect on the game. Plain and simple.
It's been 8 years of crappy hockey and if the fan-base can't muster enthusiasm, its pretty understandable. These people who go to games pay ridiculous prices to go and watch the team, even after 8 years of being among the worst teams in the NHL but they are fair-weather fans because they don't make noise in the arena when they are routinely getting embarrassed on home ice game after game, season after season? If it was happening after a couple down seasons, I'd be with you, but this isn't something that happened overnight.

Did you hear the Bell Centre on Saturday when the the Habs were down 2 goals? silent. We hear a lot about how crazy the atmosphere is at Habs games, but when they are losing? Silence.
