Those are pretty much the only stereotypes I've heard.

I mean, i do. I easily think of Canadian NT as the most physical and hard to play against. Russian's are very slick and talented in my mind and Finns play with heart and hard work.
These are all the main stereotypes out there that aren't actually there. There may be a couple players of the nationality that fall under the stereotypes, but very few do, and most players are unique. I did a report about this for my Sociology class last semester.
