Hockey is just the same as baseball. People used to think it was really imporant, until it was gone, and everything stayed just the same. It will always be popular in major markets in Canada, but its dying a slow death.
...won't someone think of the middle to upper class children struggling to take their 50k SUV's to the local arena at today's gas prices. Then have to lace up in only a few hundred dollars of equipment, because their brother got the expensive stuff, and dad has to pay the $300 public intoxication fine for fighting with another parent.
If it wasn't for the vicarious dad's taking out their frustrations through their 6 year olds who never asked to play the game, the local arenas might not get the few hundred dollars per child they need to survive.
