As for the fans who get to go to a game for once, I hope they have the foresight to borrow a pair of binoculars. I can't think of a better way to turn people off the game than trying to spot the puck at that distance!

Nope, the "fans" who show up at Rogers Arena talking and texting on the phones instead of watching the game. "Fans" who actually afford to go all the time but don't really care much about hockey...

If the team is smart, they'll create a 'hockey carnival' atmosphere and give the fans something to get excited about, because the game isn't going to be that good.
