because the crowd of Carolina doesn't undersdtand the game , are not following the puck because it's too small for them , and prefer to look Bridge games than hockey . So Carolina need to put some pink ladies , some ice smoke and tralala to get people in their arena .

We don't need cheersleaders .

Seconded. If there's one thing that I can't complain about in MTL, it's hot women who love hockey. I love business trips to MTL, I have one next year, I hope to catch a Habs game.

Hamilton has the Ice Girls for the Bulldogs.

Maybe thats why Milroy is not progressing, he doesn't want to make the NHL.

I think the Cup was big enough for them to see.

Seriously, we look so little when we act like this. Try to grow up and give them some respect; their fans were a big part of their winning it all this year.

Why doesn't montreal have cheerleaders? Because they dont need them, just like every other city in Canada where hockey is treated with the respect it deserves.

If it helps them in the southern US to have that kind of sideshow... then all the more power to them, I dont really care.

Hès being honest. Most fans in those states are at best... Fair Weather fans.
They think hockeys cool cause of the contact, and speed... but theyre not as knowledgeable about the game, so they need other incentives to keep them occupied.

NHL hockey is like the Toronto Rock in many places... If they can support a team, thats great... but lets not kid ourselves. Look at Mike Johnsons first words about becoming a Montreal Canadien: Its nice to go somewhere where Hockey means something to the fans.

Its all part of the development... over years they will build their fanbase to have more diehards... buit it takes a while... Tampa was giving away playoff tickets in their cup run season... Find one team above the sunbelt with those kind of issues...

Many places can become a great place for hockey, but I dont believe in turning it in to the Superbowl in order to retain interest. If the teams fans arent interested in the game, move it to somewhere where the team will have the appreciation of the crowd. Theres plenty of those type of places still to choose from... Like Halifax, Quebec, Winnipeg, or perhaps even Portland, Seattle, or Regina.

So I guess the Molson Ex Zone in the Bell Centre is located in the southern United States?

If it helps people to crap all over other team's fans to feel superior, then all the more power to them, I don't really care.

Ok, but the same argument could be made for the Molson Ex Girls, the loud music, the fancy light show before the game, etc... It's what the kids want, and I'm not going to complain as long as the action on the ice is good.

For sure it was frustrating in Phoenix, but that was a weird choice for a team move; absolutely no hockey history, so it needs a load of time to build (as you said). Not my first choice by a longshot... they had better choices at the time. That being said, it's not like the team is being run well by any stretch of the imagination.

They were? Maybe in the first round... but I'd like to hear from Sotnos or someone else who actually follows the Lightning for confirmation (or a link, perhaps). Of course you're right that it takes time to build the fanbase, but just because we've had a century here in Montreal doesn't mean we shouldn't give other cities the opportunity, especially if they're profitable.

The Habs almost folded in the early 40s, remember. Horrible attendance.

I think the fans are interested in the game, and the cheerleaders are a "default" sports add-on in the States for any sort of event... remember, this is a country that takes it's cheerleading very seriously (from high school to college to professional sports), so it's not as if they're doing it especially for hockey. In fact, it just shows that they see it as another sporting event.

And since we're now stocking Molson Ex Girls who annoyingly try to rally the fans when we let in two goals in a row, I guess we can't sit here and judge, either.

thats you talking, not me

Where do you get this idea about superiority?

Let me state it this way. If cheerleaders are needed in the southern US markets, whatever, they can do whatever they want. Maybe its a part of their basketball/football culture to have them there at a hockey game.

what does this have to do with superiority?

In Carolina they dont know what hockey is so they need some intertaiment for theire fans. We got the strip bars in montreal for pre and post game partys so we really dont need them at the bell center

Your post was condescending (If it helps them in the southern US to have that kind of sideshow)

So does it help the Molson Ex Zone fans to have that kind of sideshow right here in Montreal?

Of course it was, but it doesn't negate the fact that every storied franchise has a struggle or three in it's history. Also, it's a fact that the Americans were the worst off and in the end folded, and it's a fact that the Habs were almost just as bad off and almost folded. No other team came that close to the precipice.

Ok wait a sec, lets not go overboard. We all know if we could have say a dozen Boxing type girls parade around the rink holding a sign saying "Period 2" we love that

I'm glad you said this. I don't understand how the thread went on this long without the mention of "cultural differences". Really though, why does it even matter? Cheerleaders are just as gimmicky in other sports as they are in hockey. Don't go thinking that having cheerleaders makes a sport or a team look any more ridiculous than a sport/team that doesn't have them. If you go to the game to check out the cheerleaders you are sad. If you refuse to go the game because there are cheerleaders you are equally sad. Get a grip. I'm embarrassed we're even debating the issue.
