The answer is…
Well, maybe not the Boston Bruins.
However, we know that the team that is the most popular among hockey fans around the world is the San Jose Sharks.
They have the most fans around North America and Canada, according to a survey released by the San Francisco Bay Area Chamber of Commerce and the National Hockey League.
That’s not the case for any other team, and that’s because the Bay Area is the hockey capital of the world.
According to the survey, the San José Sharks are the most-liked team in the country, with 82% of people who live in the region saying that they “like” them.
That doesn’t mean that they have the best fans around, however, as the survey showed that a majority of people in the San Joaquin Valley, the largest part of the Bay area, say they have a “bad feeling” about the Sharks, as well.
But the Bay is the epicenter of hockey, and for that reason, the Sharks have been embraced by many fans around this country.
A similar survey conducted by the United States National Hockey Association revealed that San Jose’s fans have more than doubled over the past four years, from 7% to 13%.
The Bay Area also hosts more NHL games than any other part of America, with more than 3,000 regular-season games played, as of February 20, 2018.
However the hockey fans in the Bay do not necessarily have a bad feeling about the San Antonio Rampage or the Vancouver Canucks.
In fact, most people in this area are actually really, really excited about them.
The Bay area’s love for the Sharks is so strong that the San Mateo County Coliseum, home of the San Diego Chargers, was the second-most popular arena in the United Kingdom in 2019, behind Wembley Stadium in London.
San Jose is the home of several NHL teams including the Sharks and the San Antonios.
The team that has been most popular in the USA has been the Minnesota Wild, who have been a regular fixture in the league since its inception in 1996.
In the United Nations rankings of hockey fans, Minnesota has the fourth-most fans, behind New York and Chicago, and ahead of Washington, D.C. The Wild have played in the Stanley Cup Playoffs twice, with the first being in 2010 and the second in 2015.
It’s not just the hockey fan that enjoys watching the team.
The San Jose Earthquakes have been the subject of several popular viral videos on social media, with some people even going as far as to say that the fans of the team are the best in the world, and even better than some of the biggest superstars in the NBA.
The Quakes are currently in the midst of a five-game losing streak and are facing a potentially difficult trip to face the LA Galaxy in the Western Conference Semifinals on Saturday, February 17.
There is some hope that the Quakes can return to winning ways.
But with a record of just 5-11-7, and with the current ownership group having taken a big gamble by buying the team, the team has struggled to find its footing.
Fans of the Quakers have taken to social media to say things like, “No way, no how, no way.
We can’t sell out the stadium.
We just can’t do it.
This is not an option.”
However, despite the fans being frustrated, they are not the only ones.
Many people in San Jose and in the U.S. are hoping that the next generation of fans will finally see the potential that the franchise has, and maybe even make the team an official NHL franchise.
It could take years, but the Sharks might have just a few more years to turn things around.
