Boston struggles to sell Bruins tickets when they suck. I don't care how many colleges are within three hours of Boston. Buffalo's produced more NHL players per capita including last year's MVP.

Boston fans in general are enormous bandwagon fans, the complete opposite of Buffalo fans (who support their team NO MATTER WHAT despite being the smallest American NHL market).

How does St. Paul not make this poll?


You can make an argument about us losing the North Stars, but this thread is about hockey, not the NHL. The Twin Cities, and Minnesota as a whole, are definitely #1 in regards to the sport of hockey.

Perhaps the OP can clarify?


Also I'm surprised not to see MSP on this list since they have such a loyal and loud fan base for their NHL team.

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.

Oh come on. I said there is an other option. Quit dissing the poll and just say Minnesota.

I said there was an other category. You can take that to mean Minnesota. What is wrong with you people

It's just a bad poll and I think you are beginning to realize it. Buffalo and Denver should be added as well, and LA should be nowhere near this list.

Definitely Detroit. The other cities don't have strong ticket demand when their team is bad (excepting NY Rangers, but NYC is enormous).

Also, who put LA on this list, and no Buffalo or Minneapolis? LOL!

I think you're just trying to start a fight and I'm not going to engage with you. I put an "other" category in there for other cities...instead of voting other and explaining your choice you just choose to insult me and say my thread sucks. Kind of a little kid response to be honest. Other includes Minnesota and Denver and Buffalo.

Seriously, Twin Cities is first thing that comes to mind when thinking US hockey.

Kind of like asking what states are best for skiing and not including Colorado

You literally could have left out any other city besides MSP and that would have been ok, but leaving MSP out is downright wrong.

I'm not trying to start any fight. I'm just saying the poll is bad. You are just getting defensive as opposed to admitting you missed some pretty big cities (all of which should be standalone in a poll like this).
