Hockey is one of the sports in the US that seems the most localized. In other words, they'll watch their team but are not "hockey fans" like you see here where they'll watch hockey no matter who is playing. I would say outside of Detroit, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia (IMO Phily has more hockey fans than basketball fans) who i think have true hockey fans i just don't know how many hockey fans there are that will watch it because they love it whether it's their local team or not outside of those markets, maybe Minnesota, NY? Moreso than the other sports, at least that's how it seems. NFL fans watch 8hrs of football every sunday all over the country no matter who is playing, same with baseball and Basketball obviously to a much lesser extent.
