Its good job creation, what would you rather do have her sell you windows and doors at dinner time on the phone, or watch her bounce around?

cheerleading in general isf****** stupid. maybe if it were college hockey that would be alright.

what teams currently have cheerleaders anyways?

offhand, im pretty sure i seen a thing on tv about the caps having a cheerleading squad. who else?


to me, cheerleading in pro hockey is as visually entertaining as those s***ty video ads on the sideboards.

its 3 steps below a suited mascot, or san jose skating out of a giant shark mouth,

im not against things that may draw new fans, but cheerleader squads i think is too much.

doesnt fit with the game at all.


I know that Dallas, Phoenix, and Florida do. Or at least I've seen them in highlights of games.

I watched the opening night oilers game and it just seems that they are really struggling to try create the right arena atmosphere. They have the goofy oil rig hanging from the rafters and bad lighting, a boring announcer. It was actually seemed funny as the game followed the Toronto broadcast where they do it right. Maybe some T+A will make the crowd sound a little more excited 'cause they were dead and the oilers played well.

I've noticed and been saying this for years. It's all the teams that are south of the Mason-Dixon line (the south). It may or may not include the California teams (I guess they aren't technically called the south).

In your non traditional hockey markets they have the cheer squad and the ice crew, which may have a girl or 2. In the traditional hockey market they have the ice girls. The cheer squad never skates and does your basic cheering stuff you would see at a football or basketball game. The ice girls actually clear the ice (they know how to skate) and they walk around the arena doing promotional/fan interaction stuff as well.

Cheerleaders are for basketball and football. I'm not against cheerleading at all, most of my friends in school were cheerleaders or on the pom squad and so was my sister when she was in high school. What they do is very physically demanding, especially when you start incorporating gymnastics in the routines -- I sure as hell can't do it.

That said, football/basketball stadiums have sidelines or end zones or areas where the girls can be so they can dance and shake their **** without killing themselves or being in the way of the players. Any hockey game I've ever been to, there's barely enough room for benches and penalty boxes, much less designated pom-pom areas.

It just seems gimmicky and hokey in relation to hockey or even baseball.

Lundqvist's demeanor in that picture is just classic. Wasn't there an incident one time where he refused to move out of the net for them?

That has to be the most commonsensical answer I've heard yet.

Ice girls do their thing in the stands (if you have the kind that don't clear the ice), but cheerleaders -by definition- lead cheers.

At my local USHL team's games, the ice girls just go around in the stands and do the rah-rah thing. They stand in the aisles and generally don't block the view.

One of them has sung the anthem. She was pretty good.

I just think that if they have cheerleaders they should be both genders (as opposed to ice girls who are -by definition- girls).

I hope the Wings never get cheerleaders. As a former cheerleader, I can say I hate pro cheerleaders. I lifted girls twice my size, threw them in the air and caught them. And I have smashed my face into the ground so many times trying to tumble and learn backflips. Pro cheerleaders don't really do anything but dance. It's not even exciting, and hockey is exciting enough.

Lame. Even more disappointing that a team with the history of the Oilers would be the first. When I first saw this thread, I figured it would be the Sens or the 'Nucks.

I've never really understood the need or the appeal (beyond the most basic one...). Maybe that is because I'm used to European crowds which tend to be more creative (i.e. chanting, singing, banners etc.)
