In 2006, some of your best players were in their prime - Sedins, Zetterberg, etc. You had a very nice, deep mix of young and old.

This time all your best offensive players will be in their mid 30's - a player's ability to score drops off like a stone after his 20's.
I don't think 2014 will be your year. The top three teams will likely be Canada, the U.S. and Russia.

In the last couple years you have produced many top young prospects. If the pros play in Korea, the best teams will be Canada, Sweden and Finland.
In 2018, both Russia and the American's best players will be in their 30's - will few prospects able to step up and take their place at a high level.

At the end of the day, hockey is now a young person's game.
