When I was growing up, I would watch a few games whenever I'd see one on TV, but I think the reason why I was never too focused on watching it all the time is because I don't have a favourite team to follow. I really enjoy the sport though, it keeps me glued to the TV. I just wish I had more knowledge about the game and the players, you know?
Well my advice is to just start watching come next season, and from there you'll probably gradually have more enthusiasm and interest for the game. Take me for example, I started watching the NBA a few years back and a spark of interest in the sport soon turned into a love for it. Oh yeah, and it's also ideal to have a team of your preference, because it only adds to the fun. Doesn't necessarily have to be Toronto in your case; it can be any team you choose. Make sure it's a team you'll have faith in and will not leave no matter what; otherwise you'd be called a bandwagoner! I ain't sayin' bandwagoners are bad, but.... ANYWAY, in terms of knowledge of the sport, again, just keep watching. It's a better alternative to looking up the rule book online. If you say, "hey, I wonder why the ref blew the whistle, seemed alright to me", It'l come to you through spectating many games.
I'm not a big fan of hockey, so I can't tell you much of the regulations; all I know is that those players, they do like to fight.
There's my advice; I know all of this from experience.
So is it just hockey?
