    Is NHL bigger than NBA?

    I heard rumors that it could become more popular in the next years. Like baseball was surpassed by American football few decades ago

    Certainly close to it and it helps they have a huge amount of Canadian market which basketball struggles to capture.

    Sorry, no. It's a minority sport everywhere outside of Canada. It has no chance of approaching the levels of interest the big three in the states get.

    In fairness though it generates money nearly on par with NBA.

    Las Vegas is now officially part of the NHL. Not really a place I'd associate with ice hockey, somehow...

    Yeah, I know there's demand there. Just, you know, giant hot desert, ice hockey, cognitive dissonance...

    I'm all telling the Sun Belt to do one! The ice in San Jose was pretty garbage. But hey, money.
