The Chicago Stadium is the only building I have been in that was as loud as games in Montreal. The Olympia in Detroit was also quite loud because of its size and shape.

There are of course different levels of loud in Montreal. Sometimes it approaches insane and is unequalled in my 40+ years of going to games just about everywhere.

Yes we have the loudest fans in an NHL building.
But if Leafs fans could actually get tickets that would be just as loud.

Minny is a very close second.

From what I've seen, the Bell center crowd is very reactive. A nice play, or a bad call will throw it into a frenzy, but it tends to fall asleep when it comes to proactively encouraging players.

Sometimes, the way the crowd reacts after a goal, missed call or a good hit reminds me of the Coliseum in Rome a few thousand years ago.

Not that I was there, but from what I hear... lol

I'd say yes. The only place I've been that was louder than Montreal was the old Chicago Stadium. But that had a lot to do with acoustics too.

Loudest:
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.

Quietest:
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?).

Man I wish US fans were still as loud and passionate. Chicago and Philly use to be scary places to play.

I've heard a few players saying the Bell Center was the loudest. However, players say Philly is one of the most intimidating place to play. I guess it must be pretty loud there too.

I disagree on your assessments of Leaf Fans....

There are too many corporate suits, and business deals going down in the platinums, golds, and reds at ACC for them to ever be truly loud.
