Maybe he's talking about the american-based NHL teams that are full of Canadians?

Weird comment...
He talked about how kids in places like California and Carolina are enrolling in hockey at high rates and about how American NHLPA membership has risen from 15 percent to 25 percent since 2000. He also lauded the NCAA over the CHL when it comes to developing NHLers. When I sent him a simple tweet about how Canadians still make up a whopping 55 percent of the league he just responded "Wait 20 years." He failed to respond to my tweet about the Americans finishing 7th at the 2012 World Juniors.
