I still don't get what "impact" you're talking about. The number of players making it to the NHL from out here has increased with the exposure allowed by the increasing range, availability and affordability of air travel out this far. If population played a more significant role, then we would have produced more than just double the number of NHLers since the number of available jobs (since expansion) has doubled, tripled, quadrupled, and then quintupled; roughly 20 pre-expansion, and ~40 since. And again, I'm struggling to think of a single rink out here that keeps, or has kept, the ice in year-round (aside from maybe the newly-constructed BMO Centre).
