Yeah but u can't really make 3 National teams I don't think, I may be wrong. Point im getting at is there are a lot more Canadian and American players in the NHL that are good/great/star players then there are then those countries. I don't think any of those countries can produce at least 3 National teams, but they could all load up and say Russia have more talent and skill than any 3 US teams combined.

EDIT: To be fair you should be making your argument with the Olympics not the WC.
