"One of the best speed skating countries + One of the best field hockey countries + reasonably sizeable population + MANY canals which freeze in the winter + lots of flat land, which would surely make the best outdoor rinks in the world = Elite hockey country?"

From a Swede (and european) view:

I dont think it's cold enough to have natural ice rinks in Holland. In these days it's hardly cold enough for a large part of Sweden (the part that has most of the population).

So that leaves it to artifical ice rinks, which cost a lot of money to run and build. Of course though since skating is popular in Holland, there ought to be some interest in the sport??
