I have lived in Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Toronto (where I grew up and currently live and work). Maybe it is an outlier experience, but I have found that the average Torontonian is way less knowledgeable when it comes to hockey than the average person in every one of those other cities. Even in an office of around 400 people, I find it difficult to have a conversation where people knew about prospects, etc in Toronto...despite the fact everyone would say they are a huge Leafs fan. In all of those other cities, I was shocked by how many people would know real details about the respective organizations.
It is just the sheer number of people in Toronto that makes it such a hockey hotbed. But as a %age of the population I would venture a guess that Toronto has the least number of truly knowledgeable hockey fans in any of the Canadian NHL cities.
