Yeah, but some of the remaining 1/3 of the roster are Russians, Czechs and Finns.

There might be some Americans on that team. Maybe even 3 or 4.

That's 3 or 4 more than I expect. My brother in law loves hockey. We are in Texas, I at least would like to watch a sport I can play.

You know, when I was a kid I used to go tobogganing all the time with my two sisters and my friends. We'd all pile onto an old wooden toboggan we had and 7 or 8 kids would all slide down the hill with 5 or 6 making it all the way down to the bottom. It was great fun. We didn't come home until we were both cold and wet, and by the time we made it home, we were worried about getting frostbite.

But, to this day I still can't skate. I either never had proper fitting skates or I just never had much opportunity to practise skating. Ice hockey is a big thing up here, but you're talking to a Canadian that can't even skate, let alone play hockey.

Funny, I can skate. I haven't since I was 13, but I can ice skate. It's a valuable skill set down here, and I often list it on job applications.
