Glad that it has worked so well and that it is having it's desired effect on Alfie :p

I was sure to emphasize where this idea started when I spoke with the article's writer.

Nice to see two Ottawa favourites being chanted in this series Alfredsson & Potvin.

Alfie nation, Sens Army, WE GOT THIS tonight! Time to give Alfie the best reception he's ever heard, I want to blow away everything from the all-star game and bring it another level.

Will be absolutely epic to be there for.

The first period countdown and Alfie chant in game 6 was just insane! It sounded amazing!!!

I had to check it out when I got home to see if it comes though on TV as well as it does in the arena. Very close but just not the same as being there.

Great work everyone, this is fun!

As a Sens fan locked inside a Leafs fan's community, I have to say thanks to the organizers of this great cheer. My kids have even being joining the chant the past few games watching on TV - even for the ones in NY that aren't prompted by the TV! My coworkers, despite their we-haven't-made-the-playoffs-in-years-but-you-still-haven't-beat-us-in-the-post-season, are envious. Forty odd years of misery for them; best chant in modern hockey for us.

Words cannot describe how thankful I am.

At least it says "message board-inspired idea" and cited facebook and other social media for spreading it. Should have named the board!

you guys need to do this every game.
i liked how other teams tarted stealing the idea to boo and mock opponents. (i understand we took it from the nordiques, but screw them they have no team)
show alffie some love and have fun at the rink weather we win or lose.

It'll keep going as long as Alfie still plays. Who knows if it'll stick after he's retired.

Somewhere, someone should start a Silfverberg chant. Whether it be in the crowd, in the lobby or wherever just get it on video.

Hope to see this chant back for another season. I plan to remind fans on my site and on Twitter a couple times on Monday.

I expect it will take awhile to catch on just like in the beginning but stick with it. We know it works!

I just got GCL and I am watching game 3 of the playoffs. I was at that game so it's cool watching it. The Alfie chant sounded awesome on TV. We have to keep it going.

I doubt you could hear it on the TV, but I was at game six last year and it got pretty loud in the section I was in and the surrounding sections as well.

Not sure if our Alfie countdown is going to survive. Seems like people are forgetting to count. I made a quick video hoping to get some attention, but I'm afraid it's going to disappear completely soon

Didn't they count down from like 11:22 to 11:11? Because they started chanting at 11:11 which is completely wrong.
