nope, not a shocker. I think it's less extreme in big markets because there is enough die hards to still support when they are down, but i certainly think the support in those markets goes "over the top" when they are winning. It's more noticeable in small markets IMO. I'll use the Hurricanes here in Raleigh for example, when they stink, PNC is empty. When they win, it's pretty full and raucous in there.

Absolutely. The year they won the Stanley Cup, fans from Toronto and Calgary were coming to games at PNC and declaring Raleigh a legitimate hockey town. That's the highest praise a southeastern fanbase can get in that sport.

For Northeastern, they'd have to something REALLY special to get any traction. Sweet 16 run, at minimum. And they'd still probably get more attention nationally than they'd get locally.
