Canada is the most consistent producer of hockey talent.

That pretty much can't be argued.

Other countries (e.g. Sweden, Russia) rise and fall, but Canada stays relatively steady.

Basically, all of a sudden Russia has a few superstars and so you're taking the opportunity to bash Canada.

But we're a machine for pumping out hockey players and I'm really not that worried.

Am I looking for ways to improve our system? Certainly. But given the number of times Canadian teams have won or made the finals in tournaments at all age levels over the past decade, I'm really not as concerned as you are, apparently.
