Newcomers to finish in 6th place or higher - Austria
Newcomers to finish in 10th place or higher- Slovenia
Newcomers to finish in 12th place or higher- Croatia, Hungary

Shouldn't Canada be #1 by those tie-breaking rules? You name the amount of golds as the first tie-breaker vs. the total amount of medals... and you also say that olympic position ranks higher than WHC. Canada's got 2 olympic golds vs. the one the Czechs have. So while Canada is trailing behind in the amount of medals, they do have better prestige when we look at the titles won.

Also, Sweden's 1994 win is from the olympics, not from WHC.

I definitely think we're gonna see a lot of "new" countries(a few of them already did before -93, but that's ancient history) win medals over the next 20 years. Switzerland looks good especially, and Denmark could have a pretty strong Olympic squad already by 2018. KHL will help Latvia, Belarus and Kazakstan, and probably make Ukraine competitive eventually.

KHL helps Latvian hockey in a way that it creates interest in hockey=more interest in hockey= more kids brought to play hockey by their parents= more selection of players= better quality of players.

There is, incidentally, one major problem Latvian hockey does currently have: the number of venues. According to the annual IIHF report, there are only 16 rinks in the country. This number which is woefully low, even if we do take the per capita angle and compare it to the total population of 2 million.

Unless there will be more venues to bring masses to the game, I don't see Latvian hockey taking any huge strides. KHL will help no doubt, but the situation will be bit akin to Denmark as of now; they can develop some really good players, and if they can get all the best gathered together to one tournament, all the necessary makings of a highly competitive team are there. Behind that squad, however, the quality just drops too deeply.


Predicting the future is hard, but I'd say the odds of getting more accurate results get better when one looks at the masses, instead of the most promising prospects. The difference between a decent, occasionally competitive hockey country and a true powerhouse is that the latter can field a good team even if all their first rate talent wouldn't happen to make it.

I have to agree, rinks are a major problem. And it doesn't look like there will be lots of new ones in the future. Hell, if some of the current ones won't cease to exist, then the result can be deemed half-successful.
