Re: LETS GO PENS!!
I think some people are turned off by Hockey because of the long length of the season. Teams could easily make up a bad start to the season or a player injury that takes weeks or even months to heal.
This is not true for NFL football. If you start out 0-3 or worse, making the playoffs is slim at best. And games are once a week. A losing streak can kill a team's season. And in the playoffs, it's win or out with no second chances.
