The immigrants in Toronto do not support hockey as much as the immigrants in Calgary/Vancouver, so hockey is decreasing in popularity among the GTA. Maybe not NHL hockey, but hockey in general.
Just my opinion.
I'm not sure about hockey as a game, but if we're talking NHL, there really hasn't been much to cheer for after the previous lockout. Kinda hard to collect new fans when your team manages to suck so consistently and the attention-wh0re of local media is hell bent on poking and jabbing on the team upon any possible opportunity.
When the team is on the up, you'll see more new fans. Coming in truckloads.
