Hockey will not survive as one of the "four major" American sports if that is their attitude. Football, basketball, and baseball are in all climates, why can't hockey be, too? The NHL needs to smash these old stereotypes like "hockey in the desert? what a load of crap!". It needs to expand and market to new fans.
