Maybe this whole argument is miscast
Actually Siberian, I think the point is fair. Canada's development system has been overhauled and quite improved, and the recent Junior success is a symptom of that. Remember the late 90s, when the Russian juniors were clearly more skilled than Canada? That has changed.
If the question is depth, there is no better measure than a narrow demographic slice. Where countries like Sweden and Russian (and almost the US) match Canada is in producing a handful of elite-level talent across age groups. So, the parity at the Olympic level.
But don't argue against the depth of Canadian talent; the numbers belie your point.
