The Best and Worst Fans of the NHL

#22 - New Jersey Devils - 12.6

Pct. of Capacity in 2008-09: 89.5% (15,790, 23rd in the NHL) Online Presence: 4.6

Last Year's rank: 30th

Justification: Last year, I ranked Devils fans dead last in the league and it created a bit of an uproar to put it mildly. They challeged my assessment of their online presence and claimed that I understated it considerably, let when I did my search for Devils related message boards and blogs I found it to be average at best. It still does not excuse a fanbase who has had one of the most dominant teams over the last 10 years to still not able to sellout most nights. The Devils fans provide a bunch of excuses but 23rd in the league in attendance for the team that finished amongst the top 5 in the league throughout the regular season is still rather puzzling. New arena, high quality team, huge population base and still in the bottom 1/3rd of the league in attendance both proportionately (in relation to the capasity of the arena) but as a fanbase they may not show up to the games as much as they should but they certainly love to complain!
Who is this guy?

This guy is a complete dumb****. Don't worry about his garbage column.

A hard-core hockey fan in New Jersey is no better or worse than a hard-core hockey fan in Montreal.

Here is a map. A map of team's location in the NHL.



The Devils moved to their location where the was a cluster**** of other teams. No **** they are going to have less fans because I'm pretty sure a good amount of hockey fans in the area were already fans of some other teams. Now, as the Devils get older and more people become interested in the sport and fans of the team have children and there are multiple generation of fans you will see a lot more fans.

BTW, what Devils blog/message boards did this ass hat look at? This board is very active. DR.com and NJDevs.com are also very active. It's impossible to read the comments section on TG's blog because there are so many.

****ing moron.

Hey, our online presence is now "average," last season he thought it was small (and that makes me chuckle as a blogger AND a poster here). We're improving!

I still don't know who he is, the Devils are still world-class. I guess haters gonna hate, I suppose.

Why is this worth talking about again? We can't complain or point and laugh at every dbag on the internet that says something bad about us. I mean c'mon...the fact he's even making that list goes to show how very little that guy gets laid.

I mean he had a ****ing percentage of online presence? Seriously?

Considering some of the responses in this thread, it's kind of hard to refute his assertion.

I don't have a problem with us being in the #15 to #25 range. #22 is very fair. We are trending up.

We are what we are, unless of course you are a total fanboy and think we should be at like #1.

No shot at the Rangers?!

I'm surprised you didn't mention this part:

All anyone has to hear is the "Potvin Sucks" chant the Madison Square Garden crowd roars when the Florida Panthers come to town as the former Islanders defenseman Dennis Potvin is now an analyst to see how raucous these fans really are.

If he's going to go around insulting everyone he can at least eliminate the multiple typos in his explanation
