    More Proof that Boston is NOT a hockey town!

    I get that everyone in Boston today is all excited about the Bruins, but let's see what kind of fans Boston really has. Well according to the latest figures, not many, or what is the norm in Boston, bandwagon fans!

    2010/2011 Top 5 NHL teams attendance
    1. Chicago - (well duh, they are the Stanley Cup Champs)
    2. Montreal - (a true hockey town)
    3. Philadelphia - (reigning Eastern Conf. champs)
    4. Detroit - (made the playoffs for 20 + years and have 4 cups in 12 years, they give their fans a reason to sell out every game)
    5. Toronto- (another true hockey town)

    Wait? Where's Boston? Maybe they made the Top 10. Let's see...
    6. Calgary
    7. St. Louis
    8. Vancouver
    9. Buffalo
    10. Washington

    Nope not in the Top 10 either? Where or where is Boston? They are an Original 6 team afterall!

    11. Ottawa
    12. Pittsburgh
    13. New York Rangers
    14. Los Angeles
    15. Minnesota

    Now come on Boston, not even in the Top 15? Even the Rangers draw more than you do and MSG is a dump! St. Louis, LA, Calgrary all draw more than Boston.

    16. Boston- hey there you are, but this is average attendance. Where are you in total attendance?

    #17: behind the Tampa Bay Lightning and just barely above the San Jose Sharks. This is not doing a whole lot to convince me that you are a hockey town! Didn't Bob Ryan say you were a hockey town? Maybe Bobby should do some simple research before he makes such a claim!

    Fact is you draw less than other Original 6 team and  sunbelt teams draw more than you do! You ARE NOT a hockey town!

    Source: http://espn.go.com/nhl/attendance/_/sort/homeTotal

    2009/2010- #15
    2008/2009- #16
    2007/2008- #26 (ouch, did we forget we have a team?)
    2006/2007- #25- (you drew more than Islanders!)
    2005/2006- *18
    2000/2001- #22

    Now before every Bostonian starts to get upset, before you make your rebuttal the following excuses are not allowed: The Bruins were not good than, The Celtics were having their run, We were watching the Patriots, The Red Sox had everyone's attention, or We were busy bashing New York. Sorry they will not fly. The Detroit Red Wings consisitently make the Top 5 and they have had to compete against a successful Pistons team in the 2000s, a better Tigers team in the 2000s, and a depressed economy.

    Numbers don't lie, Boston IS NOT a hockey town!

    The arena can only hold so many people.  By insisting on sorting by number of people rather than just percent capacity, you are handicapping them for having fewer seats.  That does not reflect the level of interest in the team.

    Or do you expect them to fill more than every seat in the house like the Blackhawks somehow do?

    All Boston needs to do to improve attendance is do what we have done here in Montreal. Line all the streets around the arena with strip clubs and wh*res.
    Its the right thing to do.

    I know you're just a young lady so don't be insulted when I point out that in order for you to offer "more proof" of something, you need to have already provided SOME proof.Saying Boston has poor attendance isn't "more" of anything. It's simply your opinion(as meaningless after you've stated it as it was before you did). Carry on TROLL!     3 MORE WINS!!!!!!!!!!

    Never let stats get in the way of a bad theory.Yes they are 17th in total attendance but average 100% butts in the seats.

    Only in Chicago can you have 9% more people in there than it holds.
    Is the same guy who runs the polls there running the attendance and including dead hockey fans??????????????

    Hey troll..  True fans don't support a team when they see injustice like owners purposely not putting a winning team on the ice to save money like the B's and the Leafs owners have done in the past.  Boston fans expect excellence and if they don't see an attempt for excellence they don't buy.  Would you buy a CD from your favourite band if they continually put out uninspired music just to make a buck?  

    Leafs would sell out even if they put the baby leafs on the ice instead of the maple leafs and I know most canadian cities would do the same.  Thats just dumb because there is no motivation for putting together a better team.
