Milwaukee is much, much worse. Sure they've been to the NLCS but they've generally been irrelevant for years. The Bucks? LOL.

Yeah, but that's almost to be expected when you're such a small market. The Milwaukee metro area is smaller than Providence now - not really an excuse since there are plenty of successful small market franchises in baseball and basketball, but it's more understandable than Philly or DC's struggles as a huge city. I think Milwaukee would've been a good city for NHL expansion in the nineties for what it's worth, I was always surprised that one of the more hockey-centered states in the north didn't have a team.

well if you say that for Orioles, then Milwaukee gets Green Bay.

Baltimore is in biking distance from Washington. Green Bay is way across the state. They haven't even played a game there in a quarter century.

Milwaukee has been in the bottom five in NBA attendance each of the last six seasons, in addition to being a relatively small market, so if it were my money I wouldn't be looking to add an NHL team to that market. Maybe NHL would be ok if there wasn't already an NBA team there.

I agree, and by this point most of the fan base up there are probably Blackhawk fans.
