The reason I bring up those large cities with lots of population and long, cold winters is a curiosity as to whether bandy attracts a lot of potential hockey prospects away from ice hockey. How do the salaries compare for bandy and hockey?
you can play bandy under open air professionally, our government won't build arena's for them....
