Nobody really cares or takes hockey seriously. Most see it about at the same level as professional wrestling where the main part of the game is bashing someones head, only difference is they use  sticks. The women in the WNBA are much more interesting and they are really legitimate athletes, as opposed the NHL who only appeal to other rednecks. That's why blacks are just about non-existant in that game. That means that the L.A Sparks WNBA titles more than trump anything the World Wrestling Federation of Hockey (aka NHL) has to offer.
