Would there be enough demand to cover costs and post a profit?

I agree with both of these points. As the parent of a daughter who lives and breathes hockey, I'd love to see an established professional league. But I don't think it would sell, and don't see any point to the NHL propping up a league that cannot stand on its own, as the NBA has done for years.

Women's pro sports just aren't marketable in the U.S. on a large scale, and I don't see hockey being any different.
