Besides the Canadian teams, which American nhl cities have hockey team as their most popular sport?
I don’t know if hockey is truly the biggest sport in any American city. Hockey is popular in the North and East. It has a strong following in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Boston, Chicago, Minnesota, and Washington. But I can’t say that hockey is more popular than baseball in ANY of those cities. Washington is the exception, but the Redskins are easily the biggest sports team in D.C. The New Jersey Devils don’t have great attendance, but the Nets are struggling. Are the Devils bigger than the Nets? I don’t have enough knowledge to comment. Perhaps the same question could be asked about Buffalo regarding Sabres and Bills. The Red Wings might have the biggest following in Detroit compared to other American cities, but I’m not sure if it beats out the Pistons and Tigers.
