Toronto sucks if you have good seats. The cool kids are in the nose bleeds

As an aside, I always had fun at Atlanta games. They had Thrasher heads that hung from the ceiling and would shoot fire when we scored. Fire + drunk rednecks who don't know anything about the game = awesome

Honestly for what Toronto has been offering lately talent wise it's not worth going unless your getting the tickets for free. Imagine tonight paying all that money to what a discusting performance vs the canes.

Hit up bars around the city and you'll see a good atmosphere
How hard is it to spell disgusting? I have seen so many variations with the word on this board that it drives me nuts.

Ok back to the fan bashing

I hate the Isles like any other Rangers fan but to have them in a list of worst crowd is pretty insulting. Islanders support their team more than just "fine".

Take out the Isles and put in the Pens and then you have a case. And don't start with the "well Consol prices are too high for some", it's BS.

I have been to a few Games at the Mellon, one of them against the Capitals. Crosby, Malkin and Ovechkin were ALL playing that night. The tickets I bought where less than $30 in the nosebleeds and aside from one person the whole crowd was extremely quiet.
There is a reason why most Pens fans are perceived as bandwagoners. Go to one of their games and you will see why.

Serious question, what is the price range for tics in Phoenix? I know I could look it up but if you know the answer then I won't need to.
Tickets I get are $40 for upper bowl, $75 for lower bowl, and there are some pricier rows in the lower bowl(obviously glass seats being one of them).

I have to say that Ottawa seems to have improved in the past couple years.

I think they dialed down the in-house ads and whatnot.

The only people who can afford the good tickets are the yuppies and suits.

You would have a quiet crowd also if you had the record Edmonton does the last few years. Our tickets are not cheap and I have not been to a home win in a long time.

I am going to the Minni game this month, and I will stab Heatley if we don't pull out a win lol.

I have been to a Sens-Bruins game, it was brutal.

The Boston fans were much louder, I actually wanted Boston to win because of it.

Exactly. Edmonton just finished 30th, 30th, and 29th. How many teams would have an average attendance of 13,000+ during years like these let alone show enthusiam.

Those seats are actually paid for... Apparently many corps in Detroit have entire sections purchased in the lower bowls, it does suck seeing them empty though. Always make you wonder when they announce it's another sellout at the Joe. But the point of the thread is 5 worst crowds and the Det crowd is pretty great.

Personally I'm not that big of a fan of the ducks crowd...... Bandwagon fans and overall clueless about hockey. I've been to maybe 30 games at the Pond / Honda center and I always find myself saying how much better Kings games are just by the atmosphere.

Pittsburgh has to be on this list. Can't even draw 19,000 for a game, while 20,000 sit outside and watch on a jumbo screen. Not to mention the whole moving away drama which was caused by a lack of fan support.

Considering the Igloo only held 17,000+ and the CEC only holds 18,000+ ...

can't draw 19k for a game because the place maxes out at around 18,500 with standing room. Should I also mention the part about the season ticket waiting list that's 9000 deep? If you want to mention the library-like silence from the suits inside that place, then yeah, you'd be right.

But to say that the place doesn't draw is completely off-base.

This is too subjective, and just leads to trolling the named fan bases.
