The interesting thing would be if the top 2 rivals of each sport was on TV vs hockey, who would watch hockey vs the other sport.
Red Sox vs Yankees vs Hockey
Patriots vs Steelers vs Hockey
Lakers vs Heat vs Hockey
Top 2 College Football teams vs Hockey (It doesn't have to be the Championship game)
Top 2 College Basketball teams vs Hockey (" ")
Tiger vs Michelson on a Sunday vs Hockey
Women's Tennis might even give hockey a run...lol Serena W. vs Clijesters
For Hockey you can sub whatever 2 teams you think Hockey fans would most like to see.
I think all those i named would give that hockey a run for its money.
In the states yeah...but the NHL doesn't just market to the US. Canada alone would boost the ratings up.
I'll always agree with you, that at the moment, the other leagues get more attention. That doesn't mean that there aren't a ton of people that watch the games though.
