Canada - Gretzky
USA - Chelios
Sweden - Lidstrom (Forsberg is close, if not for his injuries, probably he would be no. 1)
Finland - Selanne
Czech - Hasek (however, 99% of Czechs will say Jagr)
Slovakia - Chara (this is a tough one. Until recently it was Peter Stastny by a wide margin, but Chara has been arguably the best D-man in the league during the last ~5 years and had more playoff success in the last three years than Stastny during his whole career. Still it is very close and you cannot go wrong with either of them. Best Slovak born player was Stan Mikita, but as a hockey player he has to be considered Canadian)
Russia - Ovechkin (Admittedly, I don't know enough about the older non-nhl guys to properly rank them. From the players that I have watched playing in the NHL and internationally in the last 20 years I pick Ovechkin)
