By you pointing out that Sweden and other countries put other sports ahead of hockey is like a kick in the groin. It is kind of weird though as Canadians claim that hockey is Canada's game.
As for growth, if there is any it would be slow as there is debt crisis going on right now and most governments have other concerns.
Haha, that's actually exactly what I was thinking when I wrote the post!
Fact is, with Sweden as an example, the majority here would prefer to
for the football world cup (since it's actually hard in Europe), before winning olympic hockey gold any day.
