As much as I am not a fan, I'm not sure how the Maple Leafs are not in there somewhere.

They reduced each of the top 4 leagues to 4 teams, then ranked them 1-16.

Detroit Red Wings(#3) was beat out by the Steelers(#2) and Red Sox (#1).

Other NHL teams on the list.
Chicago (#16)
Canadiens (#11)
Penguins (#6)

I think overall it's pretty good.

Great news. However, can we merge with the topic started already?

I read this earlier today. What saves our bacon is the fact that the Wings are the biggest road draw in the NHL. YAY for RWN West!
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

This is so true. I usually see them on the road and you have to buy tickets way in advance no matter where they play.

Red Wings games in Phoenix might as well be home games at the Joe. Look at the crowd after the Wings score goals.

I went to the Senators home opener against the Wings to begin the 2008-2009 season, and I seriously felt right at home. :thumbup:

Because it's "American", although it includes the Habs...

Well the away thing to me is a bit cynical....

If your a casual coyotes (whoever) fan, your going to see the best games of the year (and those are against??).

Wings road attendance in 2009-10: 98.4 per cent capacity
Laffs road attendance in 2009-10: 92.5 per cent capacity

Toronto was the 14th best road draw in the NHL last year - a factor which had to bear a not-insignificant amount of consideration.

I tend to shy away from taking NHL information from ESPN, especially figures that are controversial to begin with, such as attendance.

I lol'd at this part.

16. Chicago Blackhawks-One of the “Original Six” members of the NHL, the Blackhawks have always had rabid fans. After winning the Stanley Cup this year--their first in 49 years--expect fan love to become even more intense.

Wild fans are so much better than Blackhawks and Pens fans, it's not even funny.

Always had rabid fans? You mean when the UC had 8,000 fans a night? Yeah, real rabid.
