Not saying you're wrong, but would you be prepared to defend that number?
Sure, that sounds about right, although this is a pure gut feeling. Less than 2/3 of the top end talent, very respectable. Top end players on Soviet, Czech, American, and Swedish teams certainly gave Canadian stars a run for their money. This is why so many Europeans became stars on the NHL teams in the 90s, when the gates opened.
