Wrong ! We're going to need 150 years knowing how much croatian hockey federation cares about "their" sport. In four years since EBEL came to Zagreb federation didn't do anything to improve our infrastructure by building some new rink in other city than Zagreb. And they can't have excuse like "people outside Zagreb don't know what hockey is", because at Medvescak's game in Arena (15.200) there were fans from all over Croatia.

I would like to believe that KHL would change that, but I doubt as long as current people leads our federation.
