IMO too, if you want people to love hockey, give kids the chance to afford it. How many sets of equipment could the NHL hand out annually? The idea of plopping a faux World Cup that tries to cater to America so blantantly just seems like a dumb idea.

The NFL is thinking like the NHL too, hoping plopping games into London does something. Talking to international gridiron players, those games do nothing to get people to try the sport.

You want kids to like a sport, follow what soccer does in the USA and baseball does in Australia and Europe, make the sport accessible to try and let them love the game through play.
