Montreal no longer loudest fans in NHL

LOUDEST FANS IN THE NHL

The rest of the league is discovering just how passionate Winnipeg fans are and the Jets certainly don’t mind tapping into their excitement, posting “We are the loudest fans in the NHL,” on the scoreboard before the game.

I am sure the grumbling in Montreal gets pretty loud after a SO loss.

edit: They are also about to be stuck in a conference with..
Detroit
Columbus
St. Louis
Nashville
Chicago
Minnesota
Dallas

Might be a long time before they get a chance to make the playoffs again so they better enjoy it right now.

I don`t blame just JM`s system... nor the mediocre results (which do play a role obviously).

Hard to be loud when we have guys like Cammy that trip over the blue line or Gionta who takes shot after shot from bad angles that hits the goalie straight in the chest.

Emelin and Subban are by far the most exciting players to watch.

As for forwards, nobody is exciting...

They've probably got more to cheer about in WPG

I never thought we had the loudest in the first place. The most obnoxious on the other hand...

Can't really see how either of these play a role in Jets fans being excited in the teams first season back?

Pretty easy considering their arena is half as small as ours.

Five people shouting in a small cubicle is of course always going to sound louder than seven people shouting in an auditorium.

Eller is exciting? To each their own I guess.

I think fans in the Peg just feel extremely fortunate to see their team back and this translates into a loud fanbase. A combination of sheer excitement, relief, and want to make sure they keep it around, so-to-speak.

Fans cheer the most when there is goals.

When your goalie makes more amazing saves than your team scores goals, it is really hard to be the most loudest fans -.-

they cheered after their first game was a loss 5-1. I think they'll be cheering the whole time. If we somehow get back on track, the BC will regain it's status. It's as if our building doesn't care anymore either. It's tuned out JM.

Not that it's a huge deal, but I do like bragging about how we are the loudest and we definitely are, but only in the context of our crowd being the best 7th man and in the playoffs (or even reg. season), the other team does get intimidated when the crowd is roaring. Again, it doesn't matter unless we are even competitive.

really?? what do you mean?

there's a small bunch that either do stupid things or have sheep mentality. Overall the crowd is great. The booing only happens when
a) things get really bad
b) when they deserve it

I'd personally never boo the team, but with these powerplays, I'm not against the crowd letting them know they need to do better.

You have heard of boston and philly right?

the na na na goodbye crap(seriously sometimes it gets sung with a 3-1 lead with 18 minutes left in the 3rd)...the ole's...the booing of every star playing on every team for no other reason than they are good(rather than some deep seeded hate), booing their goalie(Price a couple of years ago)...all obnoxious.

It's so obnoxious other fan bases mock us when the habs play against opposing teams in their barns
