(* Feel free to add anyone I have missed from 2010, 2011 and the BIG stars that will be coming from Canada in the 2012 Draft - which is considered to be the weakest since 1999.*)
It is no coincidence that Canada won 5 WJR Gold’s from 2005 to 2009 with our best players in the NHL.
Canada is in its worst lull since the late 1990's and it has cost us the last 3 WJR's. So, while you see the rest of the world catching up, I see Canada pulling to the side of the road for a pit stop.
Hopefully, we will see things get better after this year's pitiful draft.
Anyway, I look forward to your reply.
National teams move in cycles of boom and bust, so that supports your point. But I definitely believe that Sweden, Finland, the US and Russia have made improvements that makes it difficult for any one team to consistently win, year after year.
