    When judging this, take into account the level of play, lack-of-competence with ownership and front office, fan apathy (or disgust of own team), crappy-ness of facilities & prices, and any off-field controversies (see: Thomas, Isiah).

    Those are stupid omissions, especially in Tampa Bay's case. And where is Detriot?

    How the fuck can you justify leaving off the fucking D-Ray and the Royals, but putting the Pens on there?

    Hey, free parking is a huge draw. It's the only reason I go to games at the Trop.

    It's PhilaJank. Does anyone need a different reason?

    Pens made the playoffs last year and have two of the top five young players in the game.

    I'd vote for the Blackhawks, but I'm convinced things will change when Wirtz dies, which will happen at some point soon. Chicago is an Original Six team; the fans there will come out in droves if they become competitive again, so it's not an untenable situation.

    No disrespect IJAG, but how are the Browns not on this list?

    Woohoo, I was going to complain about the lack of the Browns, but it's now with brownie goodness!!

    I love the free parking, but moreso Kazmir and Shields. If they could find some more pitching, they could contend with the lineup they have.

    Here's hoping Niemann et al pan out next season.

    I have no clue why the Penguins are on there.

    Doc, I'll go you one better: I think that the Blackhawks will be in the playoffs in the next year or two. They have so much good young talent that they'll be a Western force for years.
