Where's The Emotion?



Ever notice that all the Canuck games that have lots of emotion and penalties happen on the road? Games that are played at Rogers arena seem very sterile. The fans make a lot of noise when the Canucks score but that’s about it.

Playing in Boston or Chicago seems to have more emotion before and after goals, why is that?

I feel that making noise has a direct effect on the way the game is been refereed, and has an effect on how the players perform, our fans sit on their hands most of the game.

That game that was played earlier this year in Boston was fantastic because of the energy the fans where generating. It got the Bruins going and made them play their game. If that game was played here it would have been exciting no doubt, but I don't think we get 11 power plays, which was partly brought on by the emotion in the building.

The game last night against Chicago was exciting because of the history between the two teams, but it seemed to be lacking any feeling, the game on March 21st in Chicago will have way more emotion, I guarantee it. (Think back to the game in Chicago earlier this year)

So if you're lucky enough to be at the games, please show up ready, keep the energy up, not just after goals but throughout the whole game. We don't want to hear that recorded message (make some NOISE). So please go and enjoy yourself which will make the games better, plus more exciting for the rest of us who have to watch the games on TV. Regardless of the reason we are not at the game, you should feel privileged that you are. The game was important enough for you to purchase a ticket and go to the game, so make some noise at let our team know you are there to support them. |It will make a difference in the atmosphere of the building and encourage our team to play their best.
