i dont see it so critical

Ok, its true, that we lost our position (Slovakia) comparing to end 1990s and begin 2000s...

But look to the NHL statistics from begin 1990s
1992/1993 - 5 Slovak players
1993/1994 - 10 (only 3 with more that 50 games!)
1994/1995 - 8
1995/1996 - 10 (again, only 6 with 50 games and more)
1996/1997 - 8
1997/1998 - 13
.
.
.

Last season it was 18 (2 goalies), this season it could be again around this number .

many peaple sais, that the time from the year 1989 (end of comunists) offered more quality...
but my question is - why were in the begin of 1990s so few Slovaks in NHL?
