If the atmosphere at the arena is bad, maybe, just maybe, it's because the team is an embarrassing pile of crap, plays a boring system and style of play, plays without heart or effort, make the same boneheaded mistakes game after game, duck hits and shy away from physical play, lose pretty much every puck battle, and seem constitutionally incapable of putting in three consecutive periods of honest effort. Maybe that's a bit difficult to get loud and excited about.

Maybe the lack of atmosphere should be blamed less on the people who shell out tons of money to watch a hockey game, and more on the people who are paid millions of dollars primarily to give them something to get excited about, and yet continually and completely fail to do so.
Thank Christ, couldn't of said it better myself. It's funny that this thread pops up after the worst game in the worst season in the past decade. What the hell do you want the fans to do? They were sure booing loud enough.

During the 2006 playoffs we had the loudest arena in the league, a couple of players commented on it. Fans just need a team to cheer for.
