As if Tuukka vs Tim Thomas wasn't enough, the Panthers will also be showing the ALCS on arena TVs

If you're a Bruins fan in Florida, the idea of watching your favorite team take on their former Vezina Award-winning goalie who abandoned the team a few years ago would be enough to get you into the arena to watch the Panthers and Bruins face off tonight.

That having been said, if you're a Boston sports fan, you might be more interested in the OTHER Boston team playing a different kind of cats tonight.

Knowing that, the Panthers have upped the ante a bit, trying to get a few extra Bruins fans to buy tickets to the game... by promoting the fact that they'll be showing Game 5 of the ALCS on TVs around the arena:

If you were a Panthers fan, what would you think of this kind of marketing? Should the team be trying to get more opposing fans into the arena? And should they be marketing it by offering to show an entirely different sport on the in-house televisions? What's your take?

I never like having more opposing fans in the stadium, personally, but I think this is a pretty cool deal anyway. What if you're a Panthers fan just wanting to root AGAINST all things Boston tonight? Intermissions can get boring...this would be something fun to do while you wait for your husband to bring you your drink and popcorn...or you know, whatever.
