Are the Americans going to overtake hockey in our lifetime?

I personally think that it all comes down to location.
Northern States are going to follow hockey more closely, because they have access to play it rather cheaply.
- Hockey is an expensive sport, requiring more equipment than soccer, football, baseball or basketball (maybe even combined)
- In places where there is no snow, why would they be interested in playing it. If I live near an ocean I'm going to surf, by a mountain - I'll ski, in warm climates - soccer/football/baseball, in winter - hockey
The Northern States have a higher population than Canada and could take over, but I think that will take time and football and baseball are still number 1 and 2
