I personally look forward to the winter olympics so I get to watch a few more games than my usual one per week. Sadly I don't have the channel that shows most of the NHL hockey in England because I can't really spare the money so this is something I'm going to enjoy greatly.
it's a fallacy, more people will watch the games because it is the olympics... but it doesn't figure into more people watching the NHL.
