The Best and Worst fans of the NHL - Toronto #3

12

#3 - Toronto Maple Leafs - 16.0 Pct. of Capacity in 2008-09: 102.6% (19,312, 5th in the NHL) Online Presence: 6.0 Last Year's rank: 3rd Justification: The fans of Toronto have been waiting a long time for something to really cheer about. A team that has been near the league's basement has not made one dent in the organization's attendance speaks loudly to the incredible loyalty of the fanbase. Toronto fans keep Canada's airwaves full of chatter about even the team's most insignificant moves. Tickets to Air Canada Center are the most expensive in the league which further proves just how deep the fanaticism runs in Canada's largest city. The team has a fairly strong online fanbase with a host of blogs and message boards but its not nearly as large as one may expect for a team that has so many die hards to its credit. Maple Leaf fans are eager to see General Manager Brian Burke give them something to really get pumped about, and this season he's added quite a few fists so if the wins do not pile up the fights probably will. With a city bursting full of hockey fans, they're sure to like the sound of that! 1-10 11-20 21-30
