Hockey is growing in popularity every year in the States and with our much larger population it's inevitable that we will eventually be fielding a better team. It might take another 20 years, but it will happen.

Short of that, the rub against the 4 years from now is with it being in russia, you won't get the friendly live action in prime time because of the time zones, so not enuff of the people that matter (N American viewers) will get to see it live, so they don't get the same ++'s for all the --'s of interrupting your season in the middle of your playoff push. sorry for the run on sentence.
