Why isn't hockey heavily discussed in America?


I know it is a Canadian/Europeanized sport.

But why isn't hockey heavily discussed in America?

Even in the New York metropolitan area, you don't hear much Rangers/Devils/Islanders/Flyers enthusiasm like the Knicks/NY Giants/Yankees day in and day out.

The only hockey players Americans still talk about daily are Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier and Mario Lemieux, guys that haven't played in the ice since the late 1990s and 2000s.

Why?
