No they are not going to be talked about more than the Titans. Neither do the Penguins in PittsburgH over the Steelers.

Struggling hockey market who has more kids playing hockey than ever before Middle TN and in the process of building a multi million dollar new facility in South Nashville. Yeah the hockey market is hurting.
That's mostly true, but on gamedays there is thorough coverage of the Pens, even when the Steelers are playing. Plus it helps that the guys on the sports talk radio stations up there actually know hockey. Now when it's playoff time, gamedays are pretty much wall to wall Pens coverage. Reports from morning skate, the locker room, the coach, the other team. There are still segments of Steelers, Pirates, other news, but the focus of the show is all Pens. Not like here in the playoffs, it's still 1 1/2 hours of NFL draft, 30 minutes of baseball, 30 mins of spring football, and maybe 30 minutes of Preds coverage.
