I've wanted an NHL team in Wisconsin forever. Can they support one? Maybe.

The state's interest in hockey has increased significantly over the last 15 years. I grew up playing hockey in Wisconsin, and usually had to drive ~2 hours for most games. Since then, they've built new rinks in a bunch of cities, and many more High Schools actually have a team now. (It used to just be mostly regional AAA select teams).

Either way, I say Wisconsin is a better home for hockey than Phoenix, Atlanta, and North Carolina.

As far as the, mentality of a city only being able to support one Pro team. Hockey has the advantage that during most of it's season people have nothing else to do, other than basketball. Especially in Wisconsin.

I don't think the MLS has much overlap with hockey fans...
