Yeah, for you and me that would be more interesting than to find out if we get beat by 3 or 5 or 8 goals by the hockey powerhouses of this world. But it could be so huge for the future of the sport if it somehow took hold in the areas where it isn't even on the radar right now. In time, that could multiply the number of Danes in the NHL. And I agree with you that I want to see the best Danish players in the best league in the world, so that would be fantastic...
There's no guarantee that Olympic qualification will bring all of this, but it
happen and it's probably the only thing that could accomplish that kind of growth for hockey in Denmark.
