I don't think there was any hockey on TV in the US in the 1980's and ratings in Canada are probably just as good today if not better despite the fact that a TV viewer has manmy more options today. The best ratings ever for hockey in the US was 1994. The SCF that year between Vancouver and New York had a big audience on both sides of the border.

It has noting to do with big cities. if you don't believe me, just watch an NFL game. GREEN BAY, WI: population: 160,000!!!
I don't believe you and watching an NFL game does not convince me of anything.
