I haven't downplayed swedens development. They are obviously among the best, but saying number of players divided with number of nhl players = best hockey development is simply idiotic.

Ok so you are saying that 16-18 is more important than 19-22 and the first day you put on your skates to you are 16. You might be right.

According to your argument though there should still be better swedish than danish nhl player ratio since they get development from the worlds best hockey development from they first start with hockey. The danish players mentioned only get world class development for 3 years and some only got it for a few months. How can they have better NHL ratio than sweden then?

If you didn't understand by now I'm just showing how ridiculous the ratio argument is
