Well, basically Russia/USSR should be just a couple of notches below Canada. In the Realm of the Relics Canada has the undisputed advantage. Then we'd have (roughly) 15 for Russia, 20 for Canada, 15 for Canadian relics, and 20 for the rest of the world... that sounds about right.
Then players from the 60s, 70s and 80s should be viewed the same way. Hasn't hockey made any progress in the last 25 years?
