The team with the better roster is not necessarily the better team, especially in such short tournaments. Neither Finland 2006 or USA 2010 was close to being the best team on paper in their respective tournaments. Judge them by how they actually performed.

As far as Canada/USA/Russia being improved, USA is the only team you could really say definitively improved by 2010. Since Finland had regressed by 2010, you could say that, using your strange logic, their respective competition was basically the same.
