Let's see. Since 1999, Dallas has been to two Stanley Cup finals (1999, 2000) and won once (1999). Carolina has been to two Stanley Cup finals (2002, 2006) and won once (2006). Anaheim has been to two Stanley Cup finals (2003, 2007) and won once (2007). And Tampa Bay won the Stanley Cup in 2004, and are on the verge of the Stanley Cup finals this year. Dallas, Carolina, Anaheim, and Tampa are pretty far south of Canada and the North East if you ask me.
The last Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup was Montreal back in 1993.
Now what was that about "hockey just doesn't work in the south"?
P.S. Don't forget that the Florida Panthers lost the Stanley Cup finals in 1996.
Southern California is not in the south, just like West Virginia is not in the west.
Also, I'm pretty sure that when the OP said "hockey just doesn't work in the south" he was talking about NHL franchises making money, not about won-loss records.
Thank you, atlanta is one of those bandwagon sports towns that don't really support their teams unless they are doing good, and when you have three other pro sports in the city someone is going to be left out.
And 96 was 15 years ago.
