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

Quite excited as a leafs fan for the next few seasons, esp with getting the first pick this year.
 
Where is the best place to watch the NHL now? Still Premier Sports on Sky?

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

Considering this, half of the NHL clubs should not be there... ;)

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