It has its ups and downs. On the plus, you get every game televised, radio broadcast, etc. During my younger days, I used to meet some of the players saturday nights while working at bars in Toronto, and its nice to be able to take a hour drive down the highway to watch home games.

On the downside, Leaf fans are terribly fickle. When they win, we're going to the cup! When they lose, its fire the coach and trade the whole team. Also, games tend to be terribly expensive to go to, because most local businesses buy up tickets like crazy to wine and dine potential customers/business contacts and such. Most of them dont even sit in their seats, but spend the night in the bar in the arena. The last time I got tickets, I won them at a stag and doe, and they were 200/seat tickets for an exibition game.
