Champions of Nothing

2012 WJHC in Calgary/Edmonton and Team Canadan Discussion

While almost all the focus in this tournament will be on the favorites, I remain amazed how well European teams can compete with only a fraction of the registered players of their US and Canadian counterparts. To put things into perspective, host Alberta has 70,000 registered players - the countries participating:Canada 572,411 / USA 500,579 / Czech 100,668 / Finland 65,251 / Russia 63,580 /Sweden 62,003 / Switzerland 26,166 / Slovakia 8,280 / Latvia 4,424 / Denmark 4,405. While Latvia and Denmark could be battling it out in a relegation round in less than 2 weeks for 9th and 10th place, there may well be the next Jannik Hansen or Karlis Skrastins (RIP) on the rosters.
