No, I cant see Spain becoming a yearly Top Division country, let alone a top 8 country in the next 10-20 years. They spent a long time in Division II and for the majority of that time, they were just a middle of the pack. They have been impressive last year but lets see how they do in Division I and assuming they get relegated, respond to that.
My best prediction for Spainish hockey is a Division I country that gets up to Top Division every so often but cant handle it. I believe they will need more than just 20 years to really get the ball rolling where they become a yearly Top Division country, I can see them turning into an Italy, France or Kazakhstan during the next 10-20 though.

What do you mean somebody like Latvia?
