    One of the reasons, I think, is that the pro hockey season is just so long. The best season that there ever was came a few years back when the players came back and they only had half a season. Every game meant something and it was so much fun to watch. Wtih a long, drawn out season, if you watch a game and the players on your team are just not into it, why would you want to put yourself through that again. Especially since the ticket prices are so expensive to.

    I lived in Buffalo for years and went to several games. It was a great sport but I put more money down for the Bills as football is my game. I heard that pro bowling attracted more viewers on TV in the US than hockey did!
