Valid. I believe the same thing. But it did take the Leafs a couple games before the atmosphere turned out to be completely crazy.
But for a team I actually care about I'm pretty sure the atmosphere will still be great and as fancylad mentioned, definitely a much better alternative than paying through the roof for playoff tickets if the whole purpose is to soak in the atmosphere (let's face it, watching games on TV is much better than watching in person unless you have court side seats).
Regardless, I live in the condos at MLS so I can keep y'all posted about what Game 1 is like. I'm cautiously optimistic about the atmosphere turning out to be great.
