The best hockey city in the North America is Minnesota and Toronto is far behind them in terms of support at all levels.
Just a couple of notes:
1. I've been to Ricoh Coliseum. It's good, but I find the atmosphere...sterile. I don't know what it is exactly, but something just doesn't quite fit.
2. I think Buffalo should definitely be in the conversation for best hockey city in North America. We regularly sell out the First Niagara Center, we watch hockey on TV at larger ratings per capita than other markets larger than ours, etc. There's a reason why Buffalo was glossed Hockey Heaven.
