I lived in Scotland for a while (it was a long time ago though) and played some hockey and watched some of these "pro" teams. Unless things have drastically changed, the quality of hockey is very poor. I'm not saying it's not fun to watch, but I think some of the better senior teams in Canada could give those teams a run for their money. It seemed to me that most of the players were Canadian, and that there weren't very many Brits playing. I would have to think they're a long, long ways off fileding a competitive team internationally.

As for popularity, it's barely on the radar screen. I lived in Edinburgh, a city of half a million and there was only one rink.
