Montreal is awesome year round and playoffs is just scary.
Edmonton during the playoffs.
NYR is pretty loud when they're winning.
Toronto can get pretty loud if something big happens.
Senators fans are frigging LAME, I swear I can hear crickets during games in Ottawa.
Edmonton during the regular season... Freaking weird how they don't make a peep during the season.
The 2000 Panthers fans are usually drowned out by the 15000 Habs fans.

I always felt that Habs are loud but not very intimidating for the opposition. For instance there's not a lot of screaming during the game except for those "Ole Ole Ole". The "Go Habs Go" thing to encourage the team are rare. I always felt Sabres fans and Leafs fans for instance were loudest at strategic points: they cheer when their team has beat a PK, when their team dominates in the offensive zone for a strong shift and they boo more strongly when somebody got a bad call. These are little things that can influence a game. What's the most intimidating is when the Leafs are one goal short near the end of a game and there's a rush in the opposite end with Sundin on the ice, it becomes some sort of loud thing wich is a surge of energy to the Leafs and nerve-racking for the other teams. And the Sabres/Leafs fans beating the glass a lot add to crowd presence wich Habs fans rarely do(too polite?).
