Minneapolis...Detroit and Boston are also big hockey cities. Chicago it's big as well, and really took off when the Hawks got good.

You don't think that's the case in Philly? Seriously...

OP left the Twin Cities out of this poll, and as such can't be taken seriously in correlation with anything hockey related in the U.S.

Are you freekin serious, dude? Like all the fans from those other towns live inside the city limits?

Allow me to preemptively state that your contention is beyond ridiculous. It's also ignorantly racist to assume there are no black hockey fans.

You must be either a Leafs or Blackhawks fan.

That goes w/o saying, naturally. However, I believe of the cities listed that Philly probably has the highest concentration of hockey lovers that are actually, you know, IN PHILLY.

There are tons of Hawks fans that live down by St. Louis and up closer towards Milwaukee, but I wouldnt classify those fans as Chicagoans by any sense of the word.

My vote goes to Boston, used to watch Bobby Orr, Phil Eaposito and Johnny Bucyk on TV38 before I came back to Ohio in 1973, all of my relatives in Malden and Melrose were die hard fans.

Again I disagree. I lived in Philly and the vast majority of fans were from suburban South Jersey and the Delaware County suburbs in PA. The Flyers fanbase in the city are primarily from the lower middle class neighborhoods in the Northeast section of the city who can't afford attending a game where seats cost $40-$60 a pop. It's not much different in Detroit is my guess as the vast majority are probably driving in from the burbs and/or those working in the city attending games after work.

NHL Players Born in United States by Birth State - QuantHockey.com

Minnesota outpaces Michigan and New York as having the most NHL players born there. Yet population wise it's smaller than both, and WAY smaller than NY.

This poll is bad.
