I would bet the ratings for the Stanley Cup will be a disaster. I used to be a hockey fan when I was a kid, but I don't watch anymore (assuming it can be found on my TV system). I watch it in the Olympics, but that is about it. NHL really got killed by their strike a few years ago, and losing ESPN as their main channel was a killer.

The NHL does not seem to be recovering, and it sure looks like it has been passed in popularity by some "entertainment sports" like wrestling, ultimate fighting and Arena Football.

was a good game, the ducks were tough in the playoffs. west coast team won, first time since 1925... hockey will survive, it has its base of fans. not as many come and goers as other sports, but they will maintain.
