So the political junkies here may know that Silver is the statitistics wonk who called every race in the last Federal American election (except for the Senator for North Dakota) right, using statistical analysis and polling data.
The writer is something of a math and statistics vunderkind.
Well, he decided to turn his skills towards hockey, specifically to an analysis between NHL hockey in the States vs. Canada. It's and interesting, extremely in depth read (hope you like charts)

I liked the article, Red. I found the number of NHL fans by city interesting. It reminded me of some past BDC discussions regarding whether the Bruins had more fans in Canada or the USA and could Halifax or Moncton support a NHL team.
