My money's on Winnipeg or Nashville
Now that is a high risk wager... ...
I haven't been to a whole lot of the arenas but I can attest, when it gets rockin', the 'Stone is one loud barn.
Homer vote incoming , Winnipeg mostly because we haven't had much of a chance to do any playoff cheering .
Djurgårdens IF... oops sorry wrong country and leauge.
Top three will probably be Nashville, Winnipeg, and Columbus.
Toronto is very loud in the playoffs. When they played Boston a number of years ago it was insane.
Smaller arenas (sq. footage, not necessarily capacity) tend to be the loudest...couple that with a market with fewer other options and I can't imagine the answer isn't Winnipeg.
Nashville is right there with them.
A lot of the neutral announcers in last year's SC playoffs thought it was Nashville. I have only been to a few NHL arenas, so I will defer to their opinion.
They can be the loudest in Europe!
Lol maybe back in the early 2000s. It's nothing compared to other arenas
Vegas of course will be the loudest according to their increasingly cocky fans of late.
Maybe this is controversial but I honestly don't think any crowd is louder than another crowd.
Are there human beings with louder voices than others? Sure, but do they all happen to be fan of one team? Or do fans (fanatics) get more excited over their own fanaticism than others?
The real question here is "Which stadiums acoustics and which TV broadcasts sound the loudest in person and on TV"
There are no loud crowds in the NHL.
Las Vegas is a dark horse in pure noice level, but I expect the 2 canadien team and Nashville to be closest to european crowds with some good taunting of the other teams...
Winnipeg recorded 107.8db at a recent home game. It was louder than that in the 2015 playoffs IIRC
You've obviously never attended a game in Vancouver
This is a iffy subject. Crowd noise has a lot to do with how good a buildings accoustics are. The usual suspects are San Jose, nashville and whatever Canadian team is playing.
Is Columbus really a top 3 loudest crowd? I went there to see a game a couple of years ago when they sucked and half the arena was empty. It was depressing.
Do you remember when the Blackhawks were bad and the United Center was empty or when the Penguins almost moved to KC? It happens to every fanbase but Toronto.
A playoff game in Nationwide Arena is electric and there were some goals scored where I don't even remember hearing the cannon go off. Search youtube for Foligno's OT game winner vs Pittsburgh a couple years ago.
Nationwide Arena gets loud.
Nashville or Winnipeg.
New Jersey's crowd Thursday vs. the Leafs seemed really great as well.
Washington was pretty loud when I was there for a playoff game last year.
From the 2014 playoffs...crowd noise blew out a supposedly "unbreakable" sound system
Columbus Blue Jackets ‘Fifth Line’ fans turn up, break speakers
