Gentlemen’s Quarterly magazine has named Canadiens fans as the worst in the National Hockey League and the 11th worst in professional sports. Here is an example of the piece: « In 2003, team veteran Patrice Brisbois was heckled almost every time he touched the puck; the jeering was so intense it likely induced a stress-related irregular heart beat. How did then GM Bob Gainey feel about his bloodthirsty fan base? ‘I think they’re abunch of gutless bastards, to be honest,’ he said.
The Habs were the only club to crack the top 15 of « the meanest fans in America. »
Are Canadiens hockey fans the worst in the NHL?
