We are ranked 4th???

I can understand us not being 1.... but we are definitely 2 or 3
The ranking is based on the last two years, which medals Canada have from 1999 to 2010 doesn't matter.

The last two years:

U20

Russia: 1st, 2nd
Sweden: 4th, 1st
Canada: 2nd, 3rd
USA: 3rd, 7th

Canada is 3rd here behind Sweden and Russia.

U18

USA: 1st, 1st
Sweden: 2nd, 2nd
Canada 4th, 3rd
Russia: 3rd, 6th

Canada is again 3rd, clearly behind USA and Sweden.

If you put everything together you can see that all three of Sweden, USA and Russia have done better than Canada have in the last two years in the U20's and U18's, there's really no question about it - Canada has been the 4th best team.
