Most top teams have median ages of around 25 years. That means their players are mainly 20-30 years old. At this moment, it means players born from early to late eighties.
Russia and Sweden for example, have tons of stud-class players born during those years. We have very few. If you can get one Korpikoski to NHL and the rest are second-rate SM-leaguers, then it's EXACTLY the team you're going to have at this age and time.
Really. Jalonen is NOT to blame.
