Being Polish myself (and having friends in the country) I can tell you that hockey is getting popular there. Still not a top sport like volleyball or football is, but is definitely making strides.
You also have to consider the Chicago thing as well. I've actually seen a few stories on Polish news talking about hockey in Chicago and how many Pollocks are playing rec leagues in the area. All in all hockey is still more of a region sport the only way it has to be going is up. To me it's just a matter of time.
Any German fans tell me how Leon Draisaitl has progressed? He looks like a very solid player with good NHL upside. Could he be the next Kopitar?
