How is the hockey there for anybody who can compare it to here in canada... ive seen video clips of the elite league there the best league of them all... seems ok but an old washed up theo fleury lit it up so the claribre clearly isnt great.. no offense just commenting... plus u just need more rinks and more of it on tv to increase interests... here where i live like a 45 miute drive away from victoria the provincial capital of B.C., on any given saturday... theres jr b hockey jr a hockey, the echl's victoria salmon kings, high calibre major midget and normal midget aaa hockey which is free and not bad to watch... seeing as thats what i play. thus its impossible for tons of ppl not to watch it and like it.
and another thing how many rinks are there total in england just want to compare to how many there are on vancouver island... its a big island about 8 hour driving down the eastern coast end to end about 6-7 small communities and greater victoria which has liek 800k and nanaimo with 100k, 14 minor hockey associations.. we have 33 ice surfaces just for hockey... how many there
