Is the ranking really that hard concept to understand? IIHF ranking is meant to mean nothing to you. No Canadians or others are supposed to brag with IIHF ranking. It exists because it's used to seed the teams in tournaments, for example.

It tells how countries have succeeded in latest tournaments. Canada hasn't finished well since Vancouver and that's why Canada is not number one. Yes, on paper Canada has gazillion of super-hyper-excellent players which could easily destroy all other teams in theory, but in order to be number one in IIHF ranking you have to win on ice.
