Here to help. It seems you don't know (not an attack) the rinks in or very close to Buffalo ...
Northtowns Center - 4 rinks
Leisure Rinks - 2 rinks
Holiday Rinks - 2 rinks
Cazenovia - 1 rink
West Seneca ice rinks - 2 rinks
Buffalo State College - 1 rink
Nichols - 1 rink
Hockey Outlet - 2 rinks
East Aurora - 1 rink (made from winter classic rink parts)
And I am very sure I forgot a few hockey rinks too.
And Pegula is building a 2 rink facility at the foot of First Niagara Center next year I believe.
With that being said, I can't see the US spitting out more professional hockey talent than Canada for at least 30+ years. The US may slowly grab a bigger and bigger chunk of the percentage pie, but it has a looooooong way to go, to get to 51% if it even ever gets there.
