1- Were the Pens more popular during Lemieux, Jagr peak in late 80's to mid 90's and their back to back cups.., or today's Sid and Malkin days??

2- Also, who was more popular in Pitts, Mario back then, or Sid today??

Thanks, boys..
They were very popular then, and now. I remember them selling out back then as well, and people carping about how prices for tickets had gone up, just like they do now. I do think now may surpass the popularity of back then though. Maybe because we almost lost the team, the city seems to have embraced the team even more. This is almost Steeler level intensity. There was a much more definate tier of difference between the teams back then. Steelers. Then Pens and Pirates who were about tied, Pirates likely were even ahead. Now?

Steelers-Pens






















Pirates.
