And maybe the biggest problem is the lack of rinks, the closest to me is 40min away, while 10 soccerclubs are within 10min.
As long as we don't get more rinks
, hockey don't will evolve as a big sport in Germany.
More rinks ? You have 198 indoor rinks compared to Swiss 158. I think you need better coaches for kids, less foreginers in DEL and in Bundesliga, where prospects, that are too good for juniors but not ready for DEL, would play top minutes.
