Yes that is absolutely true. Without proximity to Sweden we wouldn't have risen as a hockey power.
Im talking about when the kids are younger than 14-15-16 years of age. Preferably you have to start as early as possible. Then when you have talent you move to Sweden...but you have to nurture that talent in Denmark from age 5 and up to the time leaving for Sweden and its hockeygymnasiums.
Especially Rødovre and Herning has done that extremely well though the years, and now other clubs start to follow.
