Also a good argument can be made about Latvia's poor economy being to blame for our regional hockey. About Belarus I don't have enough knowledge, but basically without any arguments behind the CSS dude's opinion it's hard to see where he comes from.
Try googling his name, he's got more hockey credentials than anyone on this site will ever have. Though it has to be clarified, from his job perspective, since scouting for potential NHL players is his job, it's obvious there isn't much to scout in those countries.
