How about Ukraine, they have some senior players many people know but in Juniors they have been very lackluster. They have a few prospects playing at higher levels but what seems to hurt them is players of Ukranian descent representing Russia i.e seniors Zherdev, Tverdosky, Vishnevski, Zhitnik young players like Gayduchenko prospects like Lysenko, Grigorenko. Though I realize many were born in Russia, they are Ukrainian-Russians and would greatly enhance Ukranian hockey ! Russia has enough depth to compensate.
