from Stephen Brunt of the Globe and Mail,
...Only this season, with a bit of the euphoria finally wearing off even in the hockey heartland, is the true measure of that “victory” beginning to become apparent.
The sport is dead as a national television property in the United States. Not struggling. Not in development. Dead….
What is obvious are more vast stretches of empty seats than ever before, most dramatically in what were once very good hockey towns: St. Louis, Chicago and Boston. The Blues, for a game against the Blackhawks this season, opened the doors and watched as only 5,400 fans (announced) walked through the turnstiles.
