It's still a niche sport where up here people will fill the arena every night and there will be a ton of people watching on TV.
My thoughts exactly. Hockey is ridiculous up here. I look at a pretty decent hockey market in the Buffalo region, and during the World Juniors a couple years ago, Canadians flooded to the games absolutely dominating every other countries fanbase including the USA/Canada games.

It's cliche to say, but hockey is a religion up here. You have to experience it really to understand.

There is no doubt in my mind that another team in the area would be extremely successful.
