I'm quite surprised, 0.07 percent of the Danish population is registered in hockey yet they still manage to yield a pretty competitive team. Less than even teams like Italy, Latvia, Austria yet Denmark still manages to have many teams in the top division on many levels. Also in sports like soccer and handball they are frequently amongst the top despite a population of just about 5.58 million people. What does this tell me? It says to me that the Danes generally have really good athletic genes and if there was an increase in the registered players they could easily be a top 6-7 team. I believe the obesity ratings in the country are amongst the lowest in Europe as well so many people are fit in the Danish population.
