Today wasn't undercounting at all.

 

Maybe not.  I wasn't there, so I'll take your word for it.  But they have undercounted several other games this year.

We were lucky to have 12,000 in the building tonight.  Pathetic attendance.  I was shocked by how many empty seats there were.

The Habs during the week are never a good draw.  We always have 12000 games against them on weekdays and sellouts with half the building Hab fans on weekends.

A lot of Habs fans, as expected. I can't imagine what the building would've looked like if this game was against the Flames or Oilers...

It looked awful on TV. Most of the time you can't tell on TV, but last night it looked really bad.

Habs fans are slowly becoming my #3 most hated fan bases only behind the Flyers and Rags.

It didn't seem to me that there were that many.  Maybe a few hundred. 

 

Interestingly, I noticed a decent number of Habs fans that were there with Devils fans.

Penguins fans actually annoy me more than Flyers fans.  Islanders fans have started to get annoying too.  At least in my opinion.

 

1. Rags

2. Penguins

3. Flyers

4. Isles

Isles fans were peakcocking last season because it was the first time they were better than us since 1986.  They've been put right back in their place this season.  You won't be hearing much out of them until they move to BK with the JayZ Nets.

not true at all. They're a high profile western conference team and there are plenty of Michigan transplants and Wings bandwagoners in the area

They don't play in the Western Conference anymore, and Devils fans have never cared about Western Conference anything.

This is the reason they made those 3 games a couple years ago against the Wings, Ducks and Stars a thing about the cups. Because it would pump up attendance on what would have otherwise been expected to be low attendance games.

you're right, I forgot about the switch

 

The last two trips the Wings made to Prudential Center were sellouts.

If you guys want an indication of what the attendance is going to be like tonight, look at ticketmaster. The upper corners, especially 226 are going to be completely empty again. Just click on the link and look at 226...this is an absolute disaster.

This is where our loudest fans usually sit. There has been no passion or intensity in the building this year, I'm so disgusted with the front office right now for not making changes to fill these seats specifically.

The Devils have always had high attendance games against the Wings in the past though, they're the one 'West' team that did consistently sell.  Of course that's not going to happen this year for a myriad of reasons already outlined in this thread - tiered pricing/super-high single-game prices/not as good a team - plus now that they're a conference opponent those games are far less rare and not once every two years where it's an event.

Not true. Last time they were here they had thousands of fans in the building. They have fans everywhere

The new owners have made it perfectly clear that loud, passionate fans, and non full STH's are not really welcomed.

lol your being over dramatic. Do you really think the reason attendance is low is because of anything other than ticket prices relative to quality of the on ice product? Plus add in the fact attendance is always lower in the first half of the season.

I wouldnt blame the front office as much. We lost 2 marquee players that were exciting to watch. Plus we cant score goals. Try to sell that to a fairweather fan
