The Panthers were advertising to Montreal fans to try to sell tickets, it was pretty funny imo. But the snow birds take over down there, There were just as many Wings fans as Panthers and Lightning fans.
When the Lightning or Panthers play a northern team at home, there's always a ton of opposing jerseys in the stadium because of snow birds. In fact, didn't one of the Florida teams actually advertise to the opposing team's fans in order to sell more tickets?
Same type of thing with the Coyotes. People don't grow up in Arizona, most are transplants.
