it mentions four states (south carolina, north carolina, florida, arizona) are high population growth....

three of those states have NHL franchises.....fans who grew up watching hockey in rust/frost belt states are moving to sunbelt state for job opportunities...

will the migration of fans, who lived in frost/rust belt states, to sunbelt states strengthen the fanbases in those markets? is it happening now?
Hrmm this is a good question..but people who move away from the rust belt/northeast, will continue to follow those teams in the sunbelt areas. Maybe their children might latch onto the local team. Good discussion point.
