Buffalo 3rd in Cup Finals Ratings

Buffalo, likely because of how disappointing the Sabres past two seasons have been, has been paying much less attention to the Stanley Cup playoffs than it usually does.

That said, the rematch between the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins is still drawing more interest in Buffalo than any other American city without a rooting interest. From the NHL's press release:

at a bunch of remarks on this page "Buffalo 3rd in Cup Finals Ratings".

I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or does it seem like some of
these comments come across like they are coming from brain
dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like to
