The results are great and all, but the NHL is an American league. Hockey is a major sport in Canada and some of the NHL's best fans reside there, no doubt, but most of the teams and the TV networks are in the US.
The problem isn't hockey's popularity in Canada. So having a poll that says Canadian fans will still care about the NHL after a strike is useless. The problem has been that there's not enough money or fans within the US, and that's hurting the NHL. A strike would only increase this problem and hurt the NHL even more.
