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.
I realize everything you have said.....some people choose to brag about rankings and in fact they mean nothing. They provide seedlings only. It has nothing to do with which Country is better. That is only determine every four years at the Olympics
