Don't dish if you can't take.
Lol, I don't think I've heard any Americans claim that, and if they did they're definitely wrong. I think most of us know that we send a team that has played together for two years and learned to develop chemistry and camaraderie that gives us an edge in this tournament while Canada has a more limited selection of CHL All Stars on teams that aren't still in the Playoffs, most of whom have never played together. It certainly says a lot about how far NDTP and USA Hockey have come to dominate this tournament in recent years but the NHL Draft is the best indicator of where most of the best hockey development is coming from and anyone can see that is plainly Canada.
