I would actually say the most loyal fans would be the NYRangers fans, cause they couldn't win a cup in 50 years, and they followed them through that, and they know it'll take another 50 years for them to win another, and their still following..

they only won in 94 cause Bettman thinks it'd be a great story and told the Refs to help the Rangers. apparently penalties don't exist for NYRangers in 1994

Well, The Wild have sold out every game since they've come into the league...

But the Rangers won the cup in 94 because of Messier, Leetch and RIchter.

I'd hate to say it, but I think the Flames fans are pretty loyal.
Every game all the fans are dressed in red and scream for their lives.
That's what being a fan is all about.
I think the Habs have the biggest rink..
21,273 people.
Only 3k more than GM place..

Here is a good link for attendance figures. Keep in mind that actual capacities are understated with some arenas.

Calgary fans, like most fans, are loyal when their team is playing well. A peek at the attendance figures for other years in the past confirms this.

That string of sellouts for Colorado ended a while back. Montreal has the largest capacity.

Here's a link for attendance figures going back to 1989-1990.

Only since the 2004 run. Flame fans used to have a reputation for being the league's quietest.

And similarly with the Avalanche -- I'd love to see what their figures would have been if the team actually had to go through expansion like everyone else. I can't stand it when the media makes it sound like some sort of hockey-mad market -- Vancouver would have been a basketball-mad market if the Grizzlies were the relocated Chicago Bulls rather than an expansion team.
