    International Hockey Fans

    Are teams like the Swiss, Latvia, Slovakia etc no longer the plug teams on the international scene? I remember the swiss as being walk overs and would never even consider Slovakia beating a powerhouse like the Russians. Are they permanent threats now or is this year just a fluke?

    It's definately evened out. The great thing about these tournament is that on any given day any team can win if they have a hit goalie, a couple stellar forwards etc..

    Slovakia actually has a really good team but not many scoring threats. The Swiss are just plain tough and physical.

    This.

    I think you must have missed about 30 years of hockey OP, the Czechs, Slovaks, Finns, and Swedes all have a majority of NHL players on their teams. Latvia, Germany, and Belarus are still relatively weak however.

    Slovakia has not been an elite team on the level of the Fins/Swedes/Czechs/Canadians/US for 30 years. In fact in 15 years they have medaled 3 times, all within 3 years. They have been the best of the worst but they have not been elite on the level of the other European teams.

    Read the original post, no where did I say the Fins/Swedes/Czechs etc were not elite, dont make up an argument.

    world championship doesn't and never has meant anything. The best players don't even compete in it.

    1994 olympics are irrelevant since pros weren't even allowed and 3 olympics isn't much to go by. Look at the players that they've produced. They're the worst of the best, not the best of the worst. I'd group them with the czechs, finnish, etc. before belarus, germany, etc.

    You have a point, they may be the worst of the best, however when you view a schedule and see the fins playing the slovaks you would automatically assume it was a finnish win. Same as when you see Canada playing the swiss, tally one up for the Canadians and lets move on.

    But now can you do that with these teams?

    The swiss will compete for medals in years to come at the worlds and Olympics. Just need a few forwards to play regularly in the NHL.
    I don't want to accept this as my prime.

    I don't want anything in my life, as it currently is, to be the pinnacle of what it will be.
