As long as people are playing hockey there's an opportunity though. Canada isn't all about seamless programs either. Of course the raw numbers aren't everything but that's the best we have.

No, but should we really be asking new posters in this section to prove whether or not the talent pool has grown since 1960? To me that's as absurd as asking someone to prove the sky is blue with a source. We shouldn't be driving away new posters who take an interest in this section with such silliness.
