My wife went to the Canuck's game last night and watched it from the company box. She remarked on how little fanfare there was and how very little was done to engage the crowd and pump them up. We see a lot of games in Phoenix and it was her opinion that they could teach the Canucks organization a lot on including fans. Better music, better light show, video clips, giveaways and promotions noise meters etc,. Jobbing .com rocks especially when a Canadian team plays and last nights game, in Vancouver, was dullsville.

Here's why: The game last night was as meaningless as all of Phoenix's games.

Possibly Luo's last game as a Canuck and the crowd doesn't even acknowledge his accomplishments and contributions.
Pretty lame,bordering on ignorant.

It was a 2-0 game for the majority of the game. The Vancouver Canucks didn't go all out, neither did the Ducks really go all out. It was what we consider a boring game were 2 teams played to stay "Healthy" Have your wife gone to the game 2 nights prior, it will be a different story.

I wonder what the atmosphere is like right now in Phoenix with them out of the playoffs. Half full statdium maybe?

Just love it when outsiders slam Rogers Arena. Funny how you mentioned "Canucks Arena"

"Possibly Luo's last game as a Canuck and the crowd doesn't even acknowledge his accomplishments and contributions.

a lot of people knew it might have been his last game. What do you want us to do? Ask him to skate around the rink clapping his hands and thanking him like he is retiring? Unreal.

The biggest percentage of fans going to Phoenix games are Canadians, its not about the teams or the arenas but the atmosphere created. It was her observation that the atmosphere was much more subdued and fans were not pumped up.

both from BC just lucky enough to get winter relief in Arizona :) Just as an aside...if you've never been to jobbing.com for a Coyote game, then you have no idea the difference in atmosphere between the two arenas at a game. You are talking out your arse sir.

The OP is not far off in his assessment. Last night's game may not be a good indicator of the crowd, but in general, specifically the lower bowl is very quiet. Even playoff games I find that after the initial rush of waving the towels, singing the anthem and the first five minutes of the first period the atmosphere disappears quite a bit.

The fans need to remember that they can impact the home games. Simply reacting to great plays by the Canucks is not good enough, we can create energy for the team to feed off of.

That being said, this only reflects my personal experiences at rogers arena, I have not been to other arenas in person, but on television they certainly come across as more lively.

Sad, but true. Anyone who denies it is the sort of person who sits on their hands the whole game because they're "concentrating on what's happening on the ice" :rolleyes:

Fans have a huge impact on games and that's one of the reasons for greater success at home. Teams can feed off the excitement of their fans and up their game. The more hype, the more noise, the more atmosphere.

I've watched games in 6 buildings and ours was by far the quietest. I find that most buildings cheer as encouragement while we cheer as a reward.

Thanks, my wife is a casual fan and she said that games at Jobbing.com are way more fun. If the Canucks are selling entertainment then this just might be an area that could be improved and at the same time help the team take their game to a higher level.

People cheer the loudiest can't afford to go to the games any more, and for those who can actually afford, sadly to say, to a lot of them, it's a show off to others. How much they know and care about the game? Well, needless to say.

I was at the game last night, nothing was worth cheering for. I mean 8 shots between 2 periods... Getzlaf, Selanne and Ryan all sitting. It was worse than most preseason games - at least then you see guys fight for roster spots.

I still cheered, and I don't have my voice this morning, but that game was beyond meaningless.
