That, in a nutshell, is the message Ottawa Senators management is sending to Toronto Maple Leafs supporters who routinely out shout, out cheer and outdo the Sens Army when the Buds visit Scotiabank Place.

I personally think this is very embarrassing for the Senators...and for the Sun to actually publish this about the Senators....

Ummm....

I guess I understand what the Senators are trying to do (with the letter), and can support them trying to make sure these games are filled with more home town fans than visitors, but the Ottawa Sun / Tony Spears kinda spoils (or puts a negative light) on the situation. I dunno, I don't live in TO

Maybe it's just me, but the nights the Leafs, Habs, Bruins, etc. come to town are great tickets because of the "other" fans that show up.

This isn't something they should be discouraging IMO.

I agree with both of you, they shouldn't discourage it, it sells tickets, it is embarrassing knowing that out of town teams have more fans then the home team.

And yeah, the Sun really dropped the ball on this one IMO. Why would you make it sound so bad for the Senators? Maybe in a Toronto news paper, but not Ottawa.

Read the fine print.

The rule applies to front-loaded contracts, ticket promotions and digital greeting cards.

The Toronto Maple Leafs tweeted a lovely Valentine's Day greeting to their fan base on Feb. 14... and took a goodhearted jab at the Ottawa Senators in the process.

“Happy Valentine’s Day to all of Leafs Nation,” reads the large Hallmark script.

And then, in elegant tiny type: “(including all of our fans who may or may not be at our next game in Ottawa).”

Did I read that right? A southern Ontario market has offered up 20% discounts and is practically begging it's local fans to show up?

Nah... that would be unpossible!

That's pretty funny of the Leafs to do. I really do hope the Sens pull off a win, that would shut those self loving Leaf fan friends of mine, plus no excuse with Karlsson and Spezza out! Heh

For a minute there when I read the headline, I thought it was referring to a Leafs vs Buffalo game in Buffalo.

But then I saw it was here on the Sens forum and read the article.

I'd suggest a $5 sweater tax for someone in a visiting team's sweater. Proceeds would go to the home team's favoured charity. As for keeping visiting fans out of your rink, that's up to the fans to buy up all the tickets they can. That goes for any team. 

I'm sure that at the core of this it a ruse to inflate a sagging rivalry.
