ouuuf Russia didn't supply many this year.

RWGR Canada does supply 80% of the talent, the 56 Americans picks are the "average" players. :)

1998 Draft, 6 in the top 10 were Canadian.
1999 Draft, 4 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2000 Draft, 4 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2001 Draft, 4 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2002 Draft, 5 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2003 Draft, 5 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2004 Draft, 3 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2005 Draft, 6 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2006 Draft, 4 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2007 Draft, 7 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2008 Draft, 6 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2009 Draft, 7 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2010 Draft, 7 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2011 Draft. 6 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2012 Draft, 6 in the top 10 were Canadian.
2013 Draft, 5 in the top 20 were Canadian.


Looks like our numbers have been pretty consistent for the last 16 drafts.

What year did we last have 80% taken in the top 10 (1993)? You know, back when the only country that even cared about hockey was Canada.

For a comparison, post how Russia, USA, and Sweden have ranked in the top 10 in the last 15 years.

We still own you, beech.

The percentage of Canadians in the NHL has dropped precipitously. It has coincided with Canada's precipitous fall form dominance in international competition.

Hockey is owned by us now.

Olympic gold medals since 1950

Canada: 2

USA: 2

Your reversal of fortunes on the international stage have been nothing short of stunning.

What you don't get is that it's not our reversal or Canada taking a step back; we're just as good as we've always been. Other countries are finally progressing and advancing their hockey programs.

I love seeing Canada get competition at IIHF, NHL and Olympic hockey, it's about time! We're still going to beat the USA all the time though.

You only see it as Canada failing, while everyone else sees it as hockey becoming a bigger and better sport. Where's your maturity and dignity?

And you're losing more and more. So, all those decades you thought you were a hockey power you were really nothing more than a country that beat other countries that really could care less about hockey.

Wow, that's...impressive.

But we see now what has happened, now that the USA has decided to take hockey seriously. You're our B****!! :)

I love seeing Canada get competition at IIHF, NHL and Olympic hockey, it's about time! We're still going to beat the USA all the time though.

You don't love seeing competition. It's why Don Cherry is now legally insane, and the CHL has decided it won't let European goalies play in their leagues anymore.

Canada is running scared, and rightly so.

You only see it as Canada failing, while everyone else sees it as hockey becoming a bigger and better sport.

Again, see above

Where's your maturity and dignity?

A great question for the powers-that-be in the CHL.

Do you have ANY idea how Canada has become a hockey laughingstock because of the latest move of paranoia and panic out of the CHL??

How does Don Cherry have anything to do with me personally liking other countries becoming competitive? How does anything the CHL does have anything to do with my personal view? Your argument goes in a circle. "USA is good, Canada is bad. - RWGR". Hit the shuffle button instead of repeat, spice it up a bit.

You're still my b itch :). If you ever want to learn how to actually play hockey, I'd gladly teach you. We Canadians love teaching the world how to play our game :)

Face it, Canada owns you at hockey and always will.

I played the game a long time, and officiated, too. Even got to officiate a few games of the Steel City tournament. Of course, your officials complained that Americans were doing their job, and doing it much better.

Your anger is telling.

I'm sure you were the best player on your team too, played college hockey - had the option to go to the NHL, but opted to become a bitter Canada hating teacher instead. Am I right?

Thank god I never had to officiate with you. You probably would call a penalty on every player for having a Canadian flag on their shoulder. There were 3 Americans that I officiated with in the SRHA on a weekly basis, so you must have just been terrible and never invited back.

Start stocking up on Kleenex, you're going to need them from all the crying you're going to do next year at Sochi. What will the US do if they can't use their NHL guys, you have no one else.

Enjoy your day! Buh bye.

Your officials went and cried to customs officials, they found some loophole to keep us out of the remaining games of the tournament. The director of the tournament was not impressed. He knew we were doing a much better job than the Canadian officials.

Nope, I never played college. Like you, I didn't go far.

I don't hate Canada, I feel deep sorrow for Canada and what it has become.
