Lots of (unsurprising) controversy erupting around MVN's yearly ranking of NHL fanbases compiled by Minnesota Wild blogger Derek Felska.
Constructed through a brand of Klingon mathematics I only vaguely grasp; based upon a three-year attendance average "scoring system", the number of team-related blogs found during a Google search (we ain't Toronto), and message board responses, these strict criteria unlock the door for a room marked "Reasons why you suck".
Foolproof, obviously. Actually, I enjoyed the commentary, if not necessarily agreeing with a healthy portion of it. In Florida's case, a near-decade without postseason action has undeniably chipped away at the market, but really...there's a buzz around the organization right now that hasn't been present since the turn of the century.
A big thanks to Puck Daddy.
