WPG is only considered a hockey market to Canadians. No one outside Canada cares because everyone knows a smaller city in that country is going to be crazy about their hockey team. Your market doesn't come close to any Orig 6, Pitt, Minn, Philly and Buffalo.
But thanks for taking another shot at the south. I could easily flip his statement around and say Kane is evolving into a superstar because he plays in a Canadian year around winter province where all there is to do is watch hockey so all the attention is on him.
