Unveiling the Secret: Why Southern Teams Have Seen so Much Success

Fans are eager to see the intriguing matches now that all the teams who will compete in the Conference Finals have been confirmed.

Each team put up a lot of effort to get where they are, and now that the Stanley Cup finals are so close, the competition will only heat up.

By examining which teams advanced to the third round, it appears that some teams had a significant advantage over the others.

The fact that three of the four remaining teams are headquartered in southern states unites them.

Florida, Dallas, and Las Vegas all have no state tax. So the players don’t pay taxes when they go to live there and play, which is about 20% of their salaries.

It looks like southern teams have a clear advantage in attracting players to their teams. In addition to the lifestyle and the hot sun, they simply pay less money to live.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
