Whether it is a dip in the cycle or development related or both there is really no way to prove it so we'll have to agree to disagree. Even if what you are saying is true is it necessarily a problem? Lots of countries have the flashy forwards yet can't come close to the success the US has had at the elite men's level. If you had to choose would you rather have a deep, well balanced team that does well at best on best tournaments or one with big names that usually doesn't go far?
