Do you really think americans value two silvers over Swedens gold?..

Better way to rank is , rank by golds first then 2points for silver and 1 point for bronze as tie breakers.

Or you can look at the sum of each team's finishes since 1998:

1. CAN: 4 + 1 + 7 + 1 = 13
2. FIN: 3 + 6 + 2 + 3 = 14
3. RUS: 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 = 15
4. SWE: 5 + 5 + 1 + 5 = 16
5. CZE: 1 + 7 + 3 + 7 = 18
5. USA: 6 + 2 + 8 + 2 = 18
7. SVK: 7 + 13 + 5 + 4 = 29
8. GER: 9 + 8 + 10 + 11 = 38

These are the only teams to play in all four Olympics.

My friend and I at work have been looking at this, , and we think it's possible to come to a combination of some sort. Account for overall finishes yet also find a way to factor in medal performances.

It's interesting that no team has consistently done well over the four Olympics. Every team has had at least one quarterfinal meltdown.

It is interesting. I think it's due to the fact that any of the top 7 really can win any given tournament, though there are favorites.
