Yes or no?
Yes, if that's what the registration numbers say then yes, I do believe it. I also believe that was more than offset by the growth and development of hockey in Europe and the US.
Keep in mind, you should give the "junior" talent pool 5 to 15 years to become potential NHL talent pool.
I'm after the truth so I'm open to new sources and references as they come available. My theory is based on what I know and have seen.
