I feel like it should be some function of Total Market Size (potential fans), Hockey Fan Population Size (hardcore fans, probably using season ticket holder base and/or tv ratings), Corporate Base size (sponsors, in-arena suites), and some other things like probably mean income or something, maybe other hockey participation at every level. Someone more gifted in math than myself could probably make an equation of this to determine Lg. Med. and Sm. markets in the NHL and potential markets around the continent.

Saying one market is a bigger hockey market because it has a higher revenue is too simplistic, too many variables. I mean, Dallas had higher revenues than several Canadian markets not long ago, and no offense to Dallas but it ain't a bigger hockey market than most of those cities.
