  1. PyeongChang 2018

    USA loses to Slovenia and OAR loses to Slovakia, both in close games. Sure it's not as good without the best of the best there, but the Men's hockey tournament might be very entertaining this year. Any other year, these would be either blow outs or there would be a clear winner halfway through.
  2. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    I've seen that with many of their games, with around 1/3 of the fans there being road fans. The only time I've seen less was the game I went to when I was down there, but the Coyotes still had all 27 of their fans make the trip up.
  3. PyeongChang 2018

    I doubt it, especially since the Olympics don't interfere with the NBA season the same way they did with the NHL.
  4. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    I believe the previous post was in its own thread earlier. They were trying to post their stat predictions for 2018-19. Doesn't really matter now since he's already been banned after 2 days. I'm just surprised he got banned for offensive statements when nobody can understand what the hell he's trying to say.
  5. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Not likely in Seattle's case since the Thunderbirds play in Kent (which is 20 Miles south of Downtown Seattle) and from what I've heard have developed a solid following since moving there from the city. It would probably be a concern if they still played at Key Arena. They also have the Everett Silvertips 30 miles to the north of downtown too.

    Speaking of exciting if this were 2012....
  7. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Not unless they get approval from London on the name, since they hold the trademark in Canada. I'm betting they'll just use the Sand Knights trademark that they already have from a while back.
  8. NHL in Houston

    The Panthers, Hurricanes and the Coyotes were the exemptions to what I was saying. Aside from attendance spikes during playoff runs or new arenas, they've never really been successful. When it comes to growing the game more in traditional markets, I personally don't believe there are a lot of failures there at the moment (I consider a failure consistently drawing below an average of 16,000, unless you're Winnipeg since they can't draw that due to arena capacity). Most of the ones that do exist are due to either arena issues (Islanders) or consistent mediocrity (Blue Jackets), but overall nothing to cause major concern yet (depending on if the Islanders get their new arena or not). As for being #1 or #2 in their city, that's something that will never happen for many teams, regardless of how successful they are because of the popularity of the NFL, NBA, and MLB in the US. I honestly wouldn't even be shocked to see it on the same level as the MLS in a decade or so due to the recent growth of that league.
  9. NHL in Houston

    I've noticed many people have said that Houston Aeros had good attendance, so that means they will be a decent hockey market. When it comes to market viability, using minor league attendance doesn't mean anything. Here are the yearly averages from the AHL Aeros (Note: they started playing at Toyota Center in 2003-04): Since everybody has been comparing Houston and Atlanta, here are the numbers for both the ECHL's Gwinnett/Atlanta Gladiators and the IHL's Atlanta Knights: The numbers for both cities are very similar. As a matter of fact, the Knights had better attendance numbers than the AHL Aeros did. There are obviously many other factors that can be used to look into it (economy, prices, etc.), but to just say "they had good minor league numbers, so that means they'll be a good NHL market", doesn't mean anything. For the record, I think they deserve a shot at a team. It's worth trying a new market out rather than keeping some teams that have been struggling for over a decade afloat forever. I don't have a problem with Sunbelt HockeyTM, but only if the markets have at least mild success (Nashville, Tampa, Dallas for example).

    Wow that's some bad green screen! At least Troy Aikman is a better "Acme Guy" than the last one...

  12. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    This really sucks. As a Jays fan who grew up watching the team in the 2000's, I consider myself lucky that I got to see him pitch, both on television and in person many time. He was one of the only star players that the team had during those years and made game at the time exciting. This may be biased of me to say he will definitely be a Hall of Famer, but I honestly believe that he will be someday.
