In Which City Does A Cancelled NBA Season Benefit Hockey The Most?



I would probably lean towards L.A.

Many high profile people take in Lakers games, wondering if some of these people might take their sports fix to the Kings this winter.


What cities do you guys think and why?

it would help in chicago. the bears' window is closed and the hawks have an exciting team. there's a large appetite for sports here, and once casual fans start to watch more hockey they will fall in love with it.

In South Florida, it benefits hugely. With the spotlight off the Heat and James, plus the Dolphins blowing the season early, the Panthers become the best game in town. They need it and it may be the best team they've had in years.

If the Panthers can get a good season going, the Miami area might turn to hockey, a little bit.

LA and probably NYC. For the amount of teams they have in a small radius, there are less hockey fans than I expected.

I'd have to agree with LA. Having a contending team and no NFL team in the way definitely helps.

I would have to guess NY as the Islanders and Devils are having a hard time drawing and with no Knicks or Nets games I think people are going to check out the Islanders and Devils perhaps? That's my best guess.

Also if the Rangers don't make it to the WS I see Dallas' numbers going up seeing as there's no Rockets or Mavericks games.

LA is a good one, im going to have to go with NY and the Rangers. Madison Square Garden is going to be taken over by Ranger fans.

HM: Dallas and the yotes

Toronto.

Los Angeles and Florida will have a rise in attendance and attention, if they do well.

In LA, everyone won't be able to pretend they like basketball and will have no opportunity to yell "KOBE!" obnoxiously. Them they just might do something smart and check out a ****ing awesome Kings team.

Nowhere....the NBA is geared towards a more urban type culture. Very rarely do you see any real overlap between the fan bases. The NBA has alienated most of America with the whole thug life/tattoos image it's been presenting

Rangers are already way more popular than the Knicks in NY

Probably New Jersey all 15 nets fans might start watching the devils.

Hawks didnt even sell out there home playoff games last year. NO one watches them.


KINGS without a doubt, and hopefully the Coyotes.

When you bring in "most" I think it'll all depend on which market uses it to their advantage in both on ice play and PR.
