I guess one thing that would be in favour of hockey development in the Netherlands is that Dutch men are the tallest in the world according to most studies on the subject, so size will likely never be an issue.

One thing I noticed while browsing Eliteprospects a while back was that there are 4 Dutch players playing NCAA D-I hockey right now, that puts them tied with Finland as the second most common European nationality. Only one of those four (Nardo Nagtzaam) seemed like an impact player on his team though, judging by the stats.
