Top 10 NHL Teams With the Worst FansHockey fans, sometimes they come, sometimes they go. Sometimes they simply want to support a winning team or never show up at all. Some of them are classless and some are just too critical. Here are the NHL Teams with the WORST fan bases...
Reading some of these comments and I'm wondering where the info is coming from. I've been to 100+ Canuck games and I've never seen the elderly threatened or lasers pointed at opposing players, fans getting threatened fr wearing opposing teams jerseys. I was once chased outside a Calgary game by half a dozen Flames fans for wearing my Canucks jersey, but that was in Calgary.
The Canucks do enjoy sell outs, but when they lost in the finals in 1994 and 2011, they started big riots. Talk about sore losers.
If they lose the stanley cup final they go crazy and riot, it was upsetting to see them riot after they lost game 7 of the stanley cup finals, I don't think flames fans in 2004, and oilers fans in 2006 and ottawa fans in 2007 rioted after they lost the stanley cup final
Crapsucks fans are a joke. They brag about nothing and clueless about hockey. Dumbest fanbase ever
They don't understand the sport. They only understand cheap shots on real athletes. They smell like the cheap beer they spilled on their Walmart tshirt at last season's game. Command of the English language has escaped them. They continually complain about the Pittsburgh Penguins because the Penguins are true athletes and skilled sportsmen. This doesn't compute in their minds.
Like unruly children, they throw dollar tree toys on the ice. Wayne Simmonds is their hero.
They deserve top billing on this list.
Stay classy Philly. Flyers fans threw bracelets that were supposed to be used to honor their passed-away owner, Ed Snider. They threw the bracelets because the Flyers were losing. Even the stadium announcer told them to stop. But you know, Philly always boo their own team. Stay classy Philly.
They spit on Penguins fans when they show no hostility on them. Flyers fans have NO respect for ANY teams. It's so fun to say No cups since 75 to them. Seeing these guys get mad is hilarious.
If I had a dollar for every time the announcer had to tell them NOT to throw stuff on the ice. Classless.
Bruins fans. Where to go with them. They blame everything on the refs. They'd even blame their granny's death on the refs. They called Joel Ward racial slurs when he scored the OT winner in the 2012 Eastern Conference Quarterfinal. They did the same with P.K Subban 2 years later.
UFC players. Their fans just here to watch Chara kill playeelrs and never get in trouble.
Well they cause trouble with Blues fans, threw popcorn at them!
They bully leafs fans
They run their mouths like they're the Yankees, but have a post season record that's closer to the Knicks.
The entire fanbase has know class because they know their team needs powerplay to score a goal.
They boo good calls against their own team, frequently boo the captains of visiting teams, and sing that annoying "Ole Ole" soccer song when their team's doing good. Seriously, a SOCCER song. And they riot when their team's knocked out of the playoffs. PLUS they're French.
Boos and mock cheers for their stanley cup goalie Roy that led to his departure did not stop them from doing the same to Price.
Absolutely not classy.
Fans of the team seem to take glee in running good players out of town. And it takes a lot of them just a couple of seconds to jump on the bandwagon for another team, at pretty much any time of the season.
They also may have the most trollish presence on social media.
Oilers fans are the worst. Ever since the mcdavid draft they think they are royalty. Classless fans throwing beer, shoving people to the curb and sucker punching other fans if they don't support them...
They should be number 1 on this list. They have an awesome team but continue to come in last. Why? Because their fans suck!
HELL YEAH! I would sucker punch someone if they insulted my team. Just like that dumbass kid at school. I'm 14 he is like 12 or 13
It's no coincidence that the Blackhawks were 29th in attendance in 2007, to selling out and leading the league in attendance 2 years later. 2009 was when the Blackhawks became a good team again. During the hard years, players even had to go out on the streets and give away free tickets. But now, they sell out and overtake home crowds. Talk about fair weather.
Easily the worst fans-biggest phonies-some teams should not be on here...the Kings have some of the best and most loyal fans-they stunk in the mid 2000's but still played to 92pct of capacity. Unlike the Blackhawks who were 2nd to last in the league in attendance at that time. The Flyers? really? They sell out every game, and they don't boo their team-this is truly stupid!
Nothing is more annoying than a leaf fan claiming how they have the best team in the league and say that media should only talk about them.
Come on, at least fill up half your arena. I mean seriously, where are all you Coyotes fans?
Their only fans are just a few canadians living in arizona.
Uh they have no fans
Definitely #1. I'm 14 and like the Oilers. Their was this stupid dumbass kid who was like 12 or 13 who was a Pens fan that called my Oilers hat trash. I called him a dumbass and told him to shut up. Just like the ugly jerk he is he asked how many cups for McDavid? He is only in his 2nd year dumb jerk. Did Sidney Crosby win the cup in his 2nd? NO! Worst part about him is that his favourite player is Malkin. What a crappy excuse of a hockey fan. But he is just a dumb kid.
Remember when the Pens were supposed to move to Las Vegas due to poor attendance? I did! When the Pens got Crosby and Malkin, who turned the team around, the Igloo started selling out every game.
Penguins fans go to other teams social media pages to tell them how much they suck. The only stat they seem to care about is how many Cups they have. A true sign on a bandwagon fan base.
I am proud to be a part of the BEST fan base on earth! Thank you Pittsburgh Penguins!
Nobody really cared about the Kings until they became good. Not to mention LA is the bandwagon capital of America.
Just overall stupid people. They hate the rangers more than they like the devils. Can usually be found wearing personalized jerseys with Sunday sauce stains on them while getting out numbered by rival fans in their own arena. Arena is in a dump of a city and has to put on tacky promotions to get any attendance.
They have no fans
Trashiest fan base
Hello? Any Panthers fans here? Guess not. The Panthers always play in empty arenas. Even when they are good, nobody seems to feel like taking a visit to BB&T Center...
Look, I know your team is struggling, but come on, don't let your Canes play in empty arenas just because of that.
Relocate...canes fans don't deserve a team
I'm not from Columbus but I've been there. I've been to a game there. These fans are a class act. They treated us well and earned our respect. We had Pittsburgh Jerseys on. Great fans!
They had Bandwagon fans in 2016 when they have the 16 game winning streak. They used to never fill their arena, now it is packed because bandwagon people.
Why are we on this list? Our fans are as nice and polite as we can be
Islanders fans are just so disrespectful, when John Tavares came back to New York after leaving to sign with the leafs, islanders fans threw items at him and started burning his jersey, they think they're good now because they think that "John Tavares is a terrible captain" while it isn't because of that, it's because it didn't work out with him and when a player leaves you should respect and thank the player. I'm glad the Carolina Hurricanes swept them.
Trust me, I grew up in that city as a Habs fan. It isn't fun. They have a kid fan base (majority are kids) and it's quite annoying. When it comes to the Leaves or Canadiens, they are despised and it's quite obnoxious how Senators treat those fans.
The way caps fans talk you'd think they're in the midst of a dynasty. It's true after years of blowing it in the playoffs they won once. Keyword: once. In 50 years.
Nobody cared about the Caps until they became good. When they drafted Ovechkin who turned the team around, Verizon Center ended up selling out every game.
They win once after fumbling better opportunities for years and caps fans find a way to act like they're the NHL's premier team with 1 cup.
