What about all the countries on the Russian boarder Belarus, Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia? Are any of them going to start producing quality players in the next 10-15 years? What about all the countries south of Austria and Slovakia? Will they be the same or grow more players?

These above are my best guesses and would like to know from fans and players of each individual country!
Hockey is easily the Biggest sport in Finland. There is more Crowd watching Mestis (the second highest hockey league in Finland) games than Veikkausliiga (the highest Football league) games. And the fact that Finland just won Gold in the World Championships just makes the gap even wider.

Hockey > Football in Finland.
