If a supossed power doesn't win for 4 or 5 years in a row then your country is now a secondary hockey power.
The suggestion that canada is a second rate hockey power is ludicrous. As someone else pointed out, canadian players (most wjc teams in general) are set up to fail and its amazing when they have a standout performance. The amount of hyperbole being thrown around is stupid even for hf standards. But this wjc team was the most stacked in a long time so it clearly was because the team was not prepared and had a poor gameplan. At the same time, if dougie hamilton doesnt boof the empty net, if ritchie doesnt hit an unlucky post
