You think many people in general or Sweden think about it that way?
Norwegian soccer league pretty much sucks too but it still draws very high attendance. Most people follow their own countries leagues.
Sure more people follow premier league etc than NHL in Sweden but a huge reason for that is that NHL games are played at 3 in the morning and half around the world.
That's of course a massive disadvantage. I'm sure if it was vice versa NHL would probably be more followed.
It makes it very unfair to compare foreign following because of that.
