Where would you say each major national team is in cyclical terms.

This is kind of interesting and semi-relevant. The
shows a graph of percentage of players by nationality in the NHL. It indicates that the US is on a light upswing as in the last 10-12 years the US has went from 15% of all NHLers to 23%. It also indicates that the American gains are coming mostly from the Eastern European countries as Russia, Czechs and Slovaks are declining in percentage of NHLers.
Probably not an indication of actual talent put more of third-fourth liners staying in the KHL for better money or something. But I found it interesting.
