Quote from: CarltonTheBear on June 20, 2022, 02:48:28 PMI watched game 1, it was great hockey. Tuned in late to game 2 and decided to do other stuff when I realized it seemed out of hand. But I think you're pretty right in that among the big sports hockey fans are more likely to just watch/follow their specific team than the league as a whole. I know lots of people who will drop everything on Sunday's to watch football all day long, regardless of who is playing. I'm a lifelong hockey fan and I genuinely don't know if I've ever watched an entire regular season NHL game that didn't involve the Leafs.
Quote from: Nik on June 20, 2022, 02:20:59 PMThe sort of general disinterest in this series really has me wondering, what percentage of hockey fans do you suppose are the sort who just love the game and would watch the finals no matter which teams were in it? People who generally have an interest in the wider sport and who are, say, interested if a team like Dallas improves their defense next year if they're not a fan of Dallas. Like, is it 10%? 15%? Lower? People who generally have an interest in the wider sport? Is it prevalent in younger fans? Because in my twitter feed hockey media pops up of people who cover hockey like the NBA in that regard and I know, like, zero fans who follow the game that way. Is anyone here, at a board devoted to following this sport and a team in this league, really watching the finals?
