Let's look at the Cup champions for the past 10 years:
2004 Tampa Bay Lightning - not a big hockey market
2003 New Jersey Devils - East Rutherford a big hockey market ?
2002 Detroit Red Wings - an owner who invested in his team
2001 Colorado Avalanche - how is Denver any bigger or better a hockey market than Calgary ?
2000 New Jersey Devils - how is East Rutherford a bigger hockey market than Ottawa ?
1999 Dallas Stars - Texas !!! ya, hockey market hotbed
1998 Detroit Red Wings
1997 Detroit Red Wings
1996 Colorado Avalanche
1995 New Jersey Devils
1994 New York Rangers - ok, this is a big market.
how many finals (or final four) apperances combined do NYR, PHI and TOR have in this period ? compare that to OTT, TBY, CGY, VAN, CRL, ANA, BUF, WSH
seems to me that the small market teams are competing just fine.
