Yes 4 of the 6 teams were based in the states, for business and commercial reasons.

Here is a list of the 36, yes 36 players who were born in the US that played in the NHL from 33-43

Here is the list of Candian born players over the same time period

Hockey was Canada's game back then pretty plain and simple.
