We all know the main reason they are so far ahead of everyone else is because they have the luxury of college sports scholarships. It's the same for women's football/soccer, USA and Canada are the best in the world despite overall not being big football/soccer countries. Most of the hockey girls here don't take it very seriously because they know there are few opportunities for them in the sport, so they just play for a laugh and aren't motivated to get in top shape or get better. Whereas the girls in Canada and USA work hard so they can get that college scholarship and then when they get to college they're in a quality setup.
