The Dancers dance more on the ends now instead of their little area in the corner. I think it;s a lot better as they are closer to the crowd and not hidden away in their little private area away from the fans. I also see them more in the aisles in the lower level so I see them closer and even more now.
I think they knew the dance routines were going nowhere as their former choreographer was not that good to say the least (she left before last season to start her own studio in Hillsborough). Their new choreographer is a little better and their song selection is a lot better too for their routines.
I also see them more on the concourse by the entrances to greet people with a nice touch. Honestly, I think I see them more now than before and thankfully not the in-your-face type of seeing them.
As for NJ Devil, while I like him I too was getting tired of seeing him after literally every whistle. It was getting a bit much.
Oh I been to quite a few home games so far and I did notice the dancers are a little better this season and I saw them on the lower aisles and on the ends behind the goals.
But it stood out this past game that they were totally gone from those posts altogether. I cant say it was the weather cause I did see them in the 1st period.
