I was listening to NHL Center Ice on XM while finishing some Christmas Shopping today and heard Jim "Boomer" Gordon say this during the Breakaway Show:
What I am about to say will anger a lot of fans in this country (he is based in Toronto), but I have to say it. The best fans, the best atmosphere in the NHL right now is in Nashville, TN. I watched the Predator/Red Wings game last night, and it was a great game. I could feel the energy in that arena coming through the television. They may just be converted college football fans, but they are great. I have not been there yet, but I have to get to the Bridgestone Arena to watch a game.
