Devils....fans?

From last night's game recap


Notes: The Devils are still looking for their first sellout of the season. The attendance of 18,235 was about 800 shy of capacity. ... Devils D Brad Lukowich was hit in the face by a high stick by St. Louis in the third period. He rushed off the ice and returned a couple of minutes later. No penalty was called.

I know everyone likes to make fun of Devils fans...but god, that's truly pathetic

this guy at the bar was talking down the Rangers and talking up the Devils as we were watching yesterday's game...

I had had enough and just leaned over to the Ranger fan next to him and said, "Did you hear about the Devils attendence for game 1? 14,000...."

.... and i'm sure his buddy overheard you and made mention of the fact that fans or no fans they've got 3 cups in the past 12 years.

i wouldn't worry about 14,000.

Ok Cap'n Obvious, we get the point.

I think the reason is that more of the Devils fans are average joe's. In the Garden you have corporations buying out the seats. Less of this occurs in the Meadowlands. Thats why you see more empty lower bowl seats there- no normal person wants to pay like $90 for a seat.

I would when NJ is no longer a viable location for an NHL franchise.

And that truly is pathetic, a team that is in the playoffs every year, and is a cup contender every year and they still have 0 fans?

Agreed. This has been mentioned too many times. Let's focus on our team.
