Si I've heard anyways. I'm not saying that as an expert but more just repeating what I've heard. It's apparently a great atmosphere to be in. And they have a pretty rich hockey history , being one of the original expansion teams.
Plus they've had Greatzky, Hull, Pronger, Oates, Stevens, MacInnis, Demitra, Tkachuk all play for them.
So I think they are a pretty solid hockey town from what I can gather.
