What is more impressive, Canada's dominance in hockey or Brazil's in soccer?

Out of the last 6 best-on-best tournaments (the 6 played since the fall of the Soviet Union) Canada has won 3 and failed to win 3. That's a strong record and they're clearly the strongest hockey nation. But 50:50 it's not domination in my book, especially considering Canada's belly landing in the 2006 Olympics, the second-last best-on-best tournament and the last on large ice.
Another way to look at it: Out of the 3 best-on-best tournaments played on large ice, Canada has won only 1. They have something to prove at the 2014 Olympics for sure. Would not be the case if their record was already dominant by now.
