The Bell Centre and Montreal Canadiens fans get a lot of recognition as one of the loudest places to play according to many players. Others argue that the Habs fans are arrogant fans, who often boo their own team.
However, the Canadiens are the most successful franchise in NHL history and have the most Stanley Cup wins by a landslide. With that kind of success, their fans expect and demand that from their team.
While it’s been awhile since they have won another Cup, they still have some of the most passionate fans, who still come out to support their team even when things aren't going as well as they'd like.
Plus, hockey is Canada’s sport. Unlike most American cities, who might have an NFL franchise, MLB franchise, NBA franchise in addition to their NHL franchise and taking most of the city’s attention, Canadian cities like Montreal have just an NHL franchise to support.
Their support and passion for their team might come across as arrogant to an outsider, but for the majority of the fanbase, its more passion than arrogance.
