In the end it comes down to the lack of rinks.

The Netherlands should be ideal for ice hockey and the NHL. A large, well-educated, well-off population that speaks English. You see this with other North American sports, all of them have their niche there. I go over there a lot (my aunt lives there and I love Holland), and I get people talking to me all the time about baseball or American football.

I did actually meet a Dutch hockey fan last year at a bar in the Jordaan, couldn't stop talking to me about the Blackhawks winning the Cup.
