Oliwa and Czerkawski were probably once in a lifetime anomalies rather than the result of a good youth system or similar, similar to what Zubrus and Kasparaitis are for Lithuania.

The lesser IIHF Division I nations tend to produce the odd NHLer or near NHLer now and then, I wouldn't take that as a sign of strength or improvement in the national program.
