Oh. I was thinking more along the lines of nations that were really good at hockey during the time periods in question. When Myskin was the 2nd best goalie in Russia, Russia might well have had the best team in the world. He had to be damned good to be the 2nd best in a damned fine country at playing hockey, no?

PS, I don't think he's a top 20, but it does show how we over elevate the top Soviets and ignore the rest of the bunch. It's funny seeing Fetisov in the top 10 on some lists, and then nary another Russian until the 50's or 60's. Not really logical if you think about it, which IMO is why we should just ignore non-NHLers in these types of things.
