That is b/c of the Big 3 retirees who moved to Phoenix (probably the biggest reason they got a team), Dallas, and Anaheim. Detroit is a massive reason for the expansion we've seen to be honest. While those cities are doing pretty well for themselves all things considered, the reason you see that fanbase in record #'s is they always won (bandwagon) or someone before them was a Red Wings fan. It is like when the Yankees come here. You see more NY stuff than Twins stuff sometimes lol.
