This is both the blessing and the curse of hockey culture. It has a strong core-community that keeps the game accessable at a grass roots level, but the core-community is so insular that it inhibits the growth of the game.

I think the problem is not that the game is inaccessable to beginners, its that it is inaccessable to adult beginners.
