i predict that hockey will cease as a sport in the coming years.....
No but national pastime? Not anymore. It's a class issue mostly. Hockey is for rich kids. People will turn towards soccer. Already the GTA is creating lots of new players for the NBA as well. 70 years ago Lacrosse was number 1, people forget. It won't be extinct at all. But to be number 2 for sure. The NHL does not care, but that probably does not matter because they won't be around by then...
