Not that it is has anything to do with hockey, but anthropologists classify Slavs into 3 different groups: South (Serbians, Montenegrins, etc.), West (Poles, Czechs, Slovaks) and East (Russians, Belarusians, Ukrainians). The Wikipedia page suggests that the South Slavs are more distinct genetically than the other 2 groups. The East and West groups are substantially different in terms of language, alphabet, religion, etc.
