Some Yankee has decided to rank the fan bases in the NHL. He's got a formula, which is completely subjective scientific and simple to replicate. Despite The Mothership's assertion about our overall experience, this guy has ranked us 24th in "The Best and Worst Fans." Would I like to see us add another 1,000 fans per game (at $40 per ticket and $40 worth of...ummm...concessions) and generate another $3 millionish in revenue? Hellz ya!! But to say that we just show up when it's convenient is disingenuous. Okay, I'll admit that Minnesota is prolly not Yankee territory, but geez! Another Northern team looking down on the South. Let me count the Wild's playoff runs --- 2 (even a goober can count that high). The Wild's Stanley Cups? Including the North Stars? Zero. I do have to respect the fact that he'sa freaking homer completely objective and ranked his team 4th. Maybe he'll be able to travel down to our area and experience driving into the RBC and seeing the tailgates, the signs, the jerseys and change his opinion. Or not. The Carolina Hurricanes will be fine without him.
