Dead for good? Why? Because it's not the most popular sport in the US??? That's not that big of a deal lol...especially when most of the world considers American football a waste of time. Hockey is more well liked worldwide that football is...I don't think it matters that is surpasses it in the US, especially when the majority of teams have no problem filling the seats and getting viewers. Besides, if people want hockey news they can just watch VS. or NHL Network.

It was just a theory but I'll concede but it is still possible that if those players are actually good it might make a difference.
If you actually payed attention to the sport (more than just a casual fan would), you'd know they are good players.

By the way, my "visual diversity" was not a trick. I was just trying to avoid that kind of thing you get when people play dumb and try to act like they don't know what you are talking about like "Hey are you saying all white people are alike?" or "Are you saying all black people are alike?". I wanted to include different ethnicities (not just race) but not play games with "Hey Russia has a different culture and ethnicity than Yugoslovia..."
I still don't get what any of this has to do with the conversation...but ok.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
