yes you are saying exciting teams would bring back all the fans to hockey and make it the #1 sport in the world and everyone would be gaga over it. but the ducks and devils with their damn traps and swamp hockey are ruining it forever and there will be no one left to ever watch hockey!!!!

I was going to mention soemthing about the fact that Anaheim and NJ are kinda third rate in first rate markets, but it is true.

And, really Griffdawg, people in Tulsa and Cincy really will not have a clue on what is slow "swamp" hockey and "fast" hockey. Trust me. I am currently living in a "basketball" city. Very few people could tell you the difference here. It all looks fast on ice skates when you compare it to basketball.

Don't we always?

Chiz - I think we are forgetting Canada.

Oh Canada.

i will repeat my points griffdawg

hockey's biggest problem right now is promotion, not stlye of play

the NHL is seriously lacking in that area, people don't know who the stars are or care. so anybody outside a city with a team could care less about hockey.

style of play is one of their least concerns right now.

my other point is ratings dont matter that much anyway. big ratings dont mean something is good, and bad ratings dont mean something is bad. hockey has its niche of die hard hockey fans who are better than fans in any other sport.

That's also not my point. I'm saying that if someone were to sit down and watch a hockey game (regardless of how familiar they were to the sport), and up and down, fast paced, hard hitting game would be much more compelling than watching players ice the puck and fall on pucks every 20 seconds.

Agreed...if this was REALLY happening.

Give it some credit...and get used to it. Now that success has been seen - it will run rampant through the league. Hockey is forever changed!

On the first point, I simply disagree. Their promotion could be better, but if the product isn't good, many people would rather watch something else, end of story.

On the second point, that's just it, Chizer: people don't know who the stars are anymore because they aren't allowed to show off their skills. There's so much clutching, grabbing, defensive systems, icings, holding, that the stars look ordinary out there, and fans can't even make them out anymore (unless it's the regular season).

Wayne Gretzky calling New Jersey a Mickey Mouse Franchise... hilarious.

The Anaheim Mighty Ducks becoming a hockey power... baffling.

A Mickey Mouse Franchise in the Finals against a team owned by Disney... priceless.

Hehehe... I'm just like one of those clever fans who wants to get on sportscenter. Aren't I friggin' witty?
