Pfft. Blue-shirt wearing leaner.

Actually I'm the same. This is the dumbest debate on the site. If there any morons who are jumping around yelling full blast all game, please eat poison and stop polluting the gene pool.

Pretty sure there is a huge difference between jumping around like an idiot and going crazy than a crowd that lacks any energy and atmosphere.

That's the problem with these discussions. Everyone takes the easiest stance, as if anyone really expects the crowd to be insane every minute or relates white out shirts to fire works an bobble heads).

Maybe those who can't see past the obvious should be removed from the pool, just a thought.

Any energy and atmosphere? That's a perfect example of the extreme you just put down. Out of the pool, homes.

The history of this debate is based on people having problems with the majority of fans not being vocal at times during games that are simply lulls in the action

It was pretty good. Crowd ought to pick the team up to start. It's the team's job to keep the crowd excited.

I fully support fans in booing pro sports teams. Well deserved tonight too.

Is complete lack of atmosphere not accurate?

Consol execs must read lgp.com; last night they gave the fans plenty of opportunity and time for human cheers! Or boos as the penguins play demanded.
Supportive and lively crowd. Largest ever for a hockey game :D weeeee

thanks CEC.

I just stopped debating that, when you have words picked apart when just stating an idea it's hard to explain.

When you walk into consol, or take your take seat it's a different feel than before. Not a lot of energy, not a lot of buzz. It used to be be a pretty energetic feel at pens game, people were just into it more.

Sure it gets loud at points, but it's not the same game experience as before. Not even close.

When there are exciting things going on, there's a palpable buzz that you can feel in the crowd. When things are boring/not going well, the arena is quiet. When the Penguins score, it's really loud and people are cheering, including me. When the other team scores, it tends to be deathly quiet.

As canaan and others have stated, I am not going to spend the entire game losing my voice just for the sake of screaming for nothing. Play well, and ye shall be rewarded.

To be fair, I haven't been to a game yet this year, but i'm sure its the same as it has been the last several years. I actually feel that it was basically the same at Mellon/Civic/the Igloo. I don't even get loud at games, its never been my thing, but the atmosphere has always been subdued in Pittsburgh compared to other places I've seen games.

The loudest I've ever heard a Pens arena was the beginning of 2006, when student rush was 20$, and probably 3k students at the game.

Money is a huge factor, if not the only reason.

Truth! If the minimum price is around 70$, there is only family or old people. I've saw videos from Quebec Rempart and it's loud, and the seats are cheaper than NHL.
But it's not the only reason.

It was louder with the students because they(could be read as "we") came from Duquesne or Pitt and stood in line getting hammered until they went in.

Loudest I ever heard it was for a Stanley cup game, when there were no students, and tickets were around $400.

This is just my opinon, but back in like 2005 and up to the Cup win, the Pens were the young team, with a franchise that hadn't won a cup in almost 15-20 years, and had all the potential and were fun and exciting as it was a fresh take after 4 or 5 years of being down. Everyone was energenic, including the team.

After winning the Cup in 2009, that became the expectation going forward, and the team is now viewed as the favorites to win and anything less is a disappointment, and pretty much every game that is not a cup final or something approaching it is viewed as "just another game until then".

We are a little spoiled and that comes with the expectation of winning and winning in the past.

Apparently the booing was loud enough...

Dave Molinari's recap from last night's game. "We're not putting a very good product out there. They're coming to watch supposedly a good team that goes out and plays, and we're not doing that right now." - Chris Kunitz on Penguins fans booing.

That doesn't explain that attitude being present in 07-08 finals game 6.

I absolutely love the booing. And you know what's great about it? It's not like in Philly where their fans will boo their team off the ice for being down 1-0 at the end of the first. For Penguins fans to boo en masse, the team's play has to be utterly abysmal. It sends a strong message.
