I would love to say either the Hawks or Avs, but the rivalry with the avs and wings isnt as big as it was a few years ago...

They missed the memo on the game being at RWS and showed up with their tickets at HSBC assuming the game was there.

I'm not really a hockey fan but I did enjoy watching some of yesterday's game especially when I overheard U2 singing "New Year's Day" while the crew repaired some of the ice...good stuff!

Hockey's great live. You should check out a Kings game sometime - or a Ducks game, maybe, as the Ducks actually are good. Not sure which is better for you geographically. San Jose also has a team.

Thinking about it now, why does California have some many teams? Canada has, what, 6 teams? And Cali has 3? lol, that's odd.

well...

The total population of California (2006 estimate) = 36,457,549
The total population of Canada (2007 estimate) = 33,390,141

Are there census figures for how many Californians actually care, or even know, about hockey versus Canadians?

I've been to see the Ducks and Kings but I'm not just a devout follower of the game; I admit its much more fun in person...

Please no comments re: no NFL in our area, that suits us just fine because we get an EXTRA game during the weekends...

Without knowing the demographics, I don't what percentage is or is not in-tune with the local hockey...

Uber - we're 5 miles north of the Honda Center (Ducks) which is directly across the freeway from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim stadium...which is 3 miles east of Disneyland!

Does the NFL play a secret game in Northridge on Friday nights or something?
