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?
What I meant be Suiss is their hockey program has grown enormously while Latvia has always been average.

E: Also you think the next best countries are going to be France and Kazakhstan?
