Probably not within the next 20-40 years but I think eventually it will happen just on account of the population difference. We're seeing kids playing hockey at a high level coming from California, Texas, etc etc. That's also not counting what's already been mentioned, all the kids of Canadian NHL players growing up in the USA. I don't think Canada will ever be a marginal country on the world stage, but I think you're going to see it become more equal between Canada and the USA. I don't know if it'll ever happen that the USA will have 50% or more of NHL players, but I think we might see a 40-40-20ish split between Canadians, Americans, and Europeans.
