You're the one making the wild claim. I would just like some stats to back it up

Yeah your data was more recent. Wait a minute. You didn't supply any data.

Nice rebuttal. Next time just say you don't know what the **** you're talking about and move along.

At least the Bruins weren't as embarrassed as the Celtics in 2004 when they drew less than the Revolution on local tv. Woof.

HFBoards - View Single Post - NESN ratings for Bruins down 19%

Boston is such a bandwagon sports town. Who knows where they would be without all the success the last 15 years.

I don't think Boston would be as high as Buffalo and Philadelphia are without the success. Those two cities have one combined championship in the last 33 years and still sell out.

That link at worst shows that you are completely wrong and at best shows that you made a very poorly worded claim in which you really meant something different from what you actually said. The link still shows MN, MA, and MI as having more players (despite all being less populated than the places you mentioned), which in turn means a higher percentage of US total players, and more players per capita. And as IShootNikon has provided, those states also have the greatest numbers of players in the pros too, both in numbers and percentages. So what exactly is your claim?

Jesus tap-dancing Christ. None of your rambling has anything to do with what I said. It's not ****ing brain surgery. Or maybe it is.

PA, IL and CA are churning out higher % of growth than MN, MI and especially MA.

Massachusetts appears to have plateaued, while CA, IL and PA are growing faster.

The data is right ****ing there to read. I am not talking about aggregate numbers. I am talking about % growth.

Then maybe you should have said exactly what you meant. Because what you actually said sure as **** isn't the same as the bolded. But to your point, no kidding, it's easier to grow at a faster rate when you have a small base to begin with. That's why the top 10 is occupied by such hockey hotbeds as NC, GA, KY and TN. When they start getting close in aggregate numbers then we can talk

Boston still hasn't produced more NHL players per capita than Buffalo, Detroit or Minneapolis.

Nobody is proclaiming that Boston is number 1. However, amirite, is acting like Boston is on the same level as Omaha which is completely idiotic.
