First of all, not many Europeans follow the West coast teams. The only team with a decent amount of fans is Detroit. Second, there are barely any Europeans on the Kings. It all depends on who they play I guess but I think the novelty of watching an NHL game here is wearing off. They couldn't even sell out the games last season. Ticket prices were outrageous so most casual fans will just stay home and watch it on TV.
I'm a happy camper when I have the chance to watch the Kings live without taking a 12 hours flight from Milan to LA...I'm headed for Stockholm with the whole family, 2 years old son included.
