Switzerland and Slovakia may challenge the top teams. The Sabres and the Oilers aren't even close to that. The status of the NHL is overblown. Yes, it's the best league right now, but it' worst teams would be competitve against the bottom feeders at the olympics, probably beat most of them, but there' a huge gap in hockey between the bottom group and the top 6 to 7 teams. Against those The Sabres/Oilers have no chance.
