Obviously this varies from area to area, but which team would you say has the most overall support in the state of Indiana?

I certainly see more Red Wings shirts in Central Indiana than any other team. Although I'm sure in NW Indiana you'd find more Blackhawks fans.

I know I am in the minority, but I am a Nashville Predators fan. I know a ton of Blackhawk fans, a few Wings fans, and one Blue Jackets fan.

I am a little surprised to see that the respnses are suggesting Indianapolis is a Red Wings town. I think most of the Red Wing "fans" in Indianapolis are people who occasionally watch hockey and the Wings are the bandwagon they chose because they are the Red Wings. If we are talking the largest number of actual fans who follow the team and have some understanding of hockey and follow them when they are losing, the Blackhawks have a lot more of that type of "fan."

You know, this makes me realize that I'm really surprised Indy doesn't have a hockey team. Columbus does, and good for them, but why not Indy? I'd think it'd be more popular for Indy to have one than Miami or Phoenix.

That said, Go Pens!

And Columbus' team is losing money. I think Indy will never be more than a minor league hockey town; there's just not a ton of enthusiasm for hockey here. But I wouldn't mind seeing it replace the NBA here.

I can only speak for the folks I know in my part of the state (NWI). Because of our proximity to Chicago, we've got a lot of Blackhawks fans around here.

Altough I HATE hockey, northern indiana (goshen/elkhart/south bend/mishawaka) would definitely have to be the Chicago Blackhawks.
