Some of them have better top prospects than others, but they are much closer to each other than they are to Slovakia or Switzerland. Which of course doesnīt mean that they canīt frustrate Slovakia or Switzerland or even beat them at top level occassionally, but there still is a drop off between SVK/SUI and the other mentioned teams.
Norway did beat Slovakia two years ago in the WJC, and both got relegated. Last time two teams went down, so we went down too.

I know Norway lost big last year, but it was a very weird and frustrating game.

We'll see next year, when we are back.
