There are a lot of hockey lovers around here. I would say maybe 60% follow a team...20% stopped when whalers left..and 20% just work to build sport up through youth hockey and maybe go to some AHL games in state.

Almost all the shopping\restaurants have left hartford into the suburbs so not sure how even a renovated Civic Center (now called XL center) would work. I would expect we would need a new arena and I cannot see that happening without 90% private funding. Not to get political, but CT is not a very friendly place to invest money so I do not see this happening...we went from no income tax and few laws/regulations 20 plus years ago to insanity now..
