Why the Gold Medal Game Won’t Help Hockey Grow in the United States

I’m sure this will make a lot of people happy to read, but it’s got to be said.


Sunday’s gold medal game will not do a single thing to make the sport of hockey any more relevant in the United States.


First of all, let me preface this entire diatribe by saying that I’m an American and I love hockey.  I’m nuts about it.  Can’t get enough of it.


That’s why I love living in Minnesota.  At any given point, I can flip on the TV or head out to my local rink and see a good game—hell, even the former NHLers that live in Minnesota now go out for some beer league games now and then.
