    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.

    Of course as more people worldwide play hockey the numbers are going to change.

    Canada > USA

    why "of course"?

    I know the turnaround for Canada's fortunes hurt, but try to deal with it in a mature and dignified manner.

    And, ">" = "wants to be"

    Olympic gold medals since 1950

    Canada: 2

    USA: 2

    Most recent WJC gold medalists between Canada and the USA: USA

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

    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?

    Olympics were played in 1948 and 1952. Canada won the gold in 48.
