    Attendance and support for this event has dropped dramatically from 300 2 years ago, 100 last year and finally 35-40 people this year. I guess support for the NHL to come back isnt working as well as the HWBC had hoped. This is why the NHL will never return to Hartford.

    Meanwhile, the Hartford Wolf Pack played before 5900 people on the same night. I guess we know people's allegiances in the state of CT and the city of Hartford.

    Leave comments and thoughts. I would love to hear peoples reactions to the support that Hartford has :rolleyes:, or should I say lack of support :biglaugh:

    I remember hockey games
    played right here in my state
    that’s where all the people came for their local team

    those days are still around, unfortunately not in my state
    support it can’t be found
    it’s in the press, and now we’re all depressed

    Bob Marley and the Hartford Whalers
    are not around
    Bob Marley and the Hartford Whalers
    have left town

    imagine New York without the rangers
    Philly without the flyers
    no Detroit red wings

    so go to games
    support your team
    and while you’re there ya buy ice cream
    let em’ know you care
    if everyone does their part
    the team won’t break your heart

    Bob Marley and the Hartford Whalers
    are not around
    Quebec’s nordiques and the golden seals
    have left town

    the Rockies and the north stars
    have both disappeared
    so support your team, while we just dream
    of our golden years

    support your team!
    let’s dream about our golden years!

    bitter as you may be, there are a ton of whaler fans all over the country. i wouldve been there if i lived there still. mock it all you want, you cant change the way people feel about it. just because no one goes to the bring em back rally doesnt mean people wouldnt support it. the fact that people even show up at all 10 YEARS later is pretty impressive. i think youre a sad person.

    whaler fans hate the wolf pack. deal with it. they will not be missed.

    comparing the amount of whaler fans to wolf pack fans is a joke.
