The Giants have them and they're... yep, 9-27-0-0
Don't look at the glass half-empty.
Actually, at 9-27-0-0 the glass would be 3/4 empty, yes?
I don't see them helping anything. during the game. If they were used for "eye-candy" before, in between and after games, or for those fan events (t-shirt give-aways or other such promos) during a period then I don't see there being a problem.
If they were going to be used to get the fans motivated, where would they perform? It would be awkward to have them jumping around in the aisles. Would there be platforms created for them, similar to what we have seen in some of the Spengler games (or was it during the WJC)? If so, wouldn't there have to be seats removed (ie. remove paying customers) to make room for the cheerleaders? I just don't see it happening.
On the other hand, I'd really like to have the Canucks go retro and bring back an organist with a large repertoire to play during the breaks in play. All of this canned music crap is annoying.
Following the Canucks since before Don Cherry played here.
