I'm a fan of live hockey. Aside from that I don't care much and you're on a board focused on Tennessee. Hockey and Lax just ain't all that around them thar parts.

Well, you just started a thread, but I doubt there will be enough interest for a forum. Go to "search this forum" and search for predators. A few threads will pop up.

I will second the need for a hockey forum. I would try my best to keep it alive. But we could just pick a hockey thread to keep alive even though I am not a Preds fan per say.

I don't understand hockey well enough to get into it. I have been to a few games but most of it made no sense to me. It was like soccer only with sticks.

A hockey forum? What's next, a soccer forum?

Hey I freaking hate NASCAR and NBA but I'm not bashing it. Besides UT does have a hockey team after all...

I also enjoy soccer too

I'm a hockey fan. A Thrashers fan now, unfortunately.

One thread would probably suffice. Not a lot of interest on this board.

i never can figure out why it's not more popular. to me, it's the best of it all.

you have the brutality of football combined with the footwork of soccer combined with the hand eye coordination of baseball. the only thing i don't think you can draw a similarity to is basketball.

Me neither. I think people just don't give it a chance. I didn't give hockey a chance for a long time but as soon as I did I got addicted. If that's not it then maybe some people are just missing the hockey gene.
