Why don't you compare instead of nit-pick?

1st Round
1 Swedish
1 Russian forward
3 American forwards
5 Canadian forwards (not sure what you were looking at when you saw 3)

Looking even deeper...after 3 rounds, exactly half the players selected were Canadian.

I guess the question is do you really think Canada is spiraling down in hockey talent? Or do you think you might be over-reacting from a non-medal in the WJC?
