Why can't Czech Republic, Finland, Slovakia produce any great skaters anymore?

The Czech Rep has continued to rack up medals since 1993.
If we are going to consider the Czech Rep an "average" or "ok" hockey nation than there are only like 2 or 3 above average or better than OK hockey nations in the world. As it stands now at the senior level they are a legit contender in any tournament they enter.
