Looking at statistics is one way to rank the players and Canada usually has the top team in that sense. There are, however, many other things which affect the performance of a player:
- line mates
- role
- team
- coach
- team tactics
etc

My point is that there's no way to define the best players and best players in NHL don't necessarily form the best line-up in national team (especially in a short tournament). Ice hockey is a team sport and not some 4x400m relay where athletes with best stats likely win.
