Some severely overrate how much 'star' talent a team needs to be a contender and even win. The roster in the OP is good enough to win a tournament. Quebec probably wouldn't be anyone's first pick for 'glory' but it would hardly be shocking if they did win.

As has been pointed out before... Almost half the Czech roster that won in '98 wasn't even playing in the NHL at the time. Since '98 Finland has probably entered every Olympic tournament as the 6th best team on paper but have more often than not (and more often than any other country) left with a medal.
