Looking at the dynamic though, there's no reason why Russia can't push forward and become #1 if they wanted to. Firstofall, they are not far off. The foundation is there, and they really want to and doing a lot to get there.
Truth is, there isn't another other than Russia country with BOTH, the resources AND love for hockey to match, for a while anyway. It could change if US goes nuts over hockey though
Russia is quite a bit behind the US IMO, and is more on par with Sweden.
