Ottawa was the worst I have seen. And if it is a MTL or TOR game, it seems more of the opposing teams fans show up.

That city has way to many government transplants to keep up a large and loyal fan base.

We should play all 82 games against BOS, win or lose, never a boring game.

I was going to disagree with you with regards to Colorado and Columbus, but I watched clips of Avs - Sharks 2010 and CBJ - DRW 2009 and neither crowd seemed very engaged.

In my experience in actually being at the game all I know is that...

1. I hate Wings fans

2. Canes fans are awesome and make a great crowd for a hockey game.

3. Lightning fans are the type of fans that yell "Shoot it, shoot it!!!!" as soon as someone touches the puck...even behind their own net.

While in some buildings the crowd creates the ambiance by themselves. Like we rarely hear a big cheer when the Habs have killed a penatly. It's like business as usual for them. While in other places you hear a good cheer of appreciation from the fans.

But they're great during the playoffs.

Insert your favorite team here.

We all know how scientific these things are.

Every stadium is loud. How will you actually know unless you've been there? You don't and you sure as hell can't gauge it by what you "hear" on TV.

Ever notice flipping through NHL Center Ice that the feeds are always different? Some drown out crowd noise while others don't. You could be sitting at home watching the Predators playing the Sharks in SJ on FSN and it would sound like a golf match.

The Oilers fans do not belong in this conversation. Our regular season crowds, for the most part, are quiet. Not because we are bored, but we have a lot of armchair analysts.

Come playoff time, we are definitely top-5.

Yeah, they definately aren't quiet. See the Kings game for example. I guess you said for the most part, but we are still great in the regular season.

canucks fans are loud until anything goes wrong. Playoff games all start off really loud. The second the pressure gets turned on the canucks the air is sucked out of the building. everyone following the game nervously.

EDIT: no we are not in the top 5. top 15?

Doesnt Detroit have a hard time selling out games still?


As for Chicago, its become nothing but Wrigley Field for hockey considering many there are just there to say they went instead of actually being die hard fans. You have the die hards, dont get me wrong, but once the opposing team goes up two goals that place becomes quiet and the beer vendors get a work load.

Nothing really stands out in the regular season.

Toronto-Montreal opener was ho hum.

Fans at the games are all candy ***** compared to hardcore fans.

NHL and NBA arenas are pathetic in atmosphere unless something "happens".
