Sens-Habs crowds at SBP are usually 60%(Sens) - 40%(Habs) ratio.
... and in a 5-1 game, half of the sens fans in the building have probably already left to "beat the traffic".
It's a problem in Ottawa... we don't have a world-class subway system like you guys do. Traffic sucks coming out of a game. It can take you 45mins just to get out of the parking lot sometimes.
Any time the score gets to a point where fans feel comfortable that the game is in hand, there's a mass exodus out of the building, mostly the "golden aged" fans (which, in our season-ticket base, we have a TON of).
He had a really good production rate on the PP last year. Just never got used much.
Eller had 3 PP pts last year, in 52Min. At that pace, our 4th best scorer had he played on it as much as our most used Forward there (DD). But it's too short of a sample to make this assumption.
But you maybe meant on scoring chances.
All in all, he always looked pretty decent on the PP. I always thought Eller could be a special teams type. He's great on the PK, 2nd best PK player imo on our team (yet he isn't used there for some reason, not sure I understand why), and I'm sure he could create things on the PP as he has nice hands and decent vision. Just give him the opportunities there.
