overtime98 Posted August 26, 2009 Share Posted August 26, 2009 22 - New Jersey Devils - 12.6 Pct. of Capacity in 2008-09: 89.5% (15,790, 23rd in the NHL) Online Presence: 4.6 Last Year's rank: 30th Justification: Last year, I ranked Devils fans dead last in the league and it created a bit of an uproar to put it mildly. They challeged my assessment of their online presence and claimed that I understated it considerably, let when I did my search for Devils related message boards and blogs I found it to be average at best. It still does not excuse a fanbase who has had one of the most dominant teams over the last 10 years to still not able to sellout most nights. The Devils fans provide a bunch of excuses but 23rd in the league in attendance for the team that finished amongst the top 5 in the league throughout the regular season is still rather puzzling. New arena, high quality team, huge population base and still in the bottom 1/3rd of the league in attendance both proportionately (in relation to the capasity of the arena) but as a fanbase they may not show up to the games as much as they should but they certainly love to complain! http://mvn.com/thestateofhockeynews/2009/08/2009-10-nhl-fan-rankings-part-i-30th-to-21st.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
