So we're in the middle of the list. I rather like to think we on the Wings boards prefer quality over quantity.

Hurricanes are dead last here and who's to blame the fans for not coming here, there has been one update on the team in the last year. There are, however, 521 registered members on fanhome.com where the Canes forum is ranked 3rd behind Toronto and Montreal.

Whoa, you mean Modano=God doesn't keep the Stars board in the top 10? I'm shocked.

Hey every team has a good board outside HF.
Most Pens fans go to letsgopens.com, which is a pretty good site.
This shouldn't count against the traffic here.

Yup. Habs have also habsrus.proboards4.com where a lot of Montreal Canadiens fans go as well.

Who you kidding? The Stars have a HUGE fanbase.. Their official website just has one of the most succesful and organised message boards compared with most. It has thousands of members.. Then they also have Andrews, the site that has your Stars news quicker then any other, it has statistics, salaries, stories, recaps, previews, links, and a message board, with probably around thousand members on his own..

THEN you have HF.. So for Stars fans, HF is often the 3rd choice, hence the low fanbase rate.

There may be more at Metro but the quality is horendous!

Here at HF on the Isles board there is way more quality then quantity.

Aside from LetsGoPens.com, the Pens' official site had over 10,000 registered members before the admins wiped clean the slate.

The Wild is a new team, but Minnesotans have been hockey fans for decades. They're not new to the NHL, either, with the North Stars up until ten years ago. They might be the most hockey-crazed state in the country.

Yup, the Preds have a great following here. By far the best of the expansion teams, I wish we could draw alot of posters away from the Preds website (they have several thousand members) and towards a far better board in HF.

And that's not including silly habs fans posts (like mine) on general boards that have little interest for non-habs fans.

There is more to a fanbase and making revenue than just those who attend the games.

You actually believe Minnesota even has a chance of hockey being more popular with the mainstream people there compared to Michigan?

"The most widely distributed hockey publication in a state where hockey is more than a sport – it is a culture. An official publication of Minnesota Hockey, the statewide governing body, MHJ covers virtually every facet of the hockey lifestyle – bringing to life the people, places and things that weave hockey into the fabric of Minnesota."

Doesn't seem like hockey is just a niche sport up there, to me. So yes, obviously they can compete with Michigan. I'll look for some hard statistics.

I have a hard time understanding how you could not know how popular hockey is in Minnesota. Tons of NHL players have come from there.

Oh yeah, there are things like dominating hockey message boards too, a sure sign that a team is making lots of money.

Anyway, why is it hard to believe that they are rabid about hockey in Minnesota?
