I read this earlier today. What saves our bacon is the fact that the Wings are the biggest road draw in the NHL. YAY for RWN West!

This is so true. I usually see them on the road and you have to buy tickets way in advance no matter where they play.

As much as I am not a fan, I'm not sure how the Maple Leafs are not in there somewhere.

Because it's "American", although it includes the Habs...

Well the away thing to me is a bit cynical....

If your a casual coyotes (whoever) fan, your going to see the best games of the year (and those are against??).

Wings road attendance in 2009-10: 98.4 per cent capacity

Laffs road attendance in 2009-10: 92.5 per cent capacity

Toronto was the 14th best road draw in the NHL last year - a factor which had to bear a not-insignificant amount of consideration.

I lol'd at this part.

16. Chicago Blackhawks-One of the “Original Six” members of the NHL, the Blackhawks have always had rabid fans. After winning the Stanley Cup this year--their first in 49 years--expect fan love to become even more intense.

I remember going to the Leafs vs Red Wings last year in November in Toronto. There was more Wing fans in attendance than Leaf fans, I thought it was weird, but Yzerman, Hull ,Robitaille e did get inducted into the HOF, the building errupted when Yzerman was called too, it was amazing.Was still good to see Detroit fans outnumber one of the biggest NHL franchises sadly Detroit lost that game badly, but the HOF inductees made it all worth it.

^ That.

You'd think that Canadian fans would be more knowledgeable, but I recently visited the Canucks forum - I've never seen a bigger bitching-fest. Not to mention the 5 threads per page all about how god-like Luongo is.

Goosebumps.. I remember they replayed the recording of this on the big screen at the Joe during the playoffs this year and I cheered like I was there every single time. Love you Stevie.
