Finland only good at junior championships? :|
1. Canada - by far
2. Sweden - second best achievments after Canada in modern hockey
3. Finland - third best achievments after Canada and Sweden in modern hockey
4. USA - Could do better I guess, feels like they always fall short in WC/Olympiqs
5. Russia - Shitload of good invididual players but always fail to make a team. Only wins WC, long time ago they did good at Olympqics
6. Czech Republic - Sometimes gives, sometimes takes
7-10. Slovakia, Switzerland, Denmark and Germany
axaxaaxa mby in 2000s
latvia better than germany no?
imo Latvia should be in Top10
We will see in september. Can't wait to see true World Cup.
Team or player wise? Russia's team isn't better than the U.S's... Their goaltending is trash and their defense questionable. But they do have a lot of stars...
And WC/Olympic hockey isn't real hockey, it's pussy ass hockey... NHL is real hockey.
If team USA played team Sweden in bo3 series with NHL rules team Sweden would lose imo. They'd be worn down physically... Sweden has a lot of skill players but they aren't known for a physical brand of hockey... When you only play like 1-2 games against quality teams in these events it easy to get by. But like I said bo7 ez for USA.
I mean USA gets in the Olympic finals like every year so IDK why they are 4th
i hope some day i can type Poland
but so far Canada/Russia
1 - Canada
2 - Russia
the rest is shit, goodbye
I dont really know much about hockey but heres my guess
Ice or Field/Outdoor Hockey?
Outdoor = Australia NUMBA WAN
Ice = meth in australia lol too many meth heads no goodski
No one cares about hockey
1.canada(too much depth)
2.Sweden(Although they need some new talent especially on the offense, hopefully guys like filip forsberg, Adam larsson, John Klingberg and landeskog can lead them, they have one of the best young defenses though with Hedman, Ekman larson and Karlsson)
3.USA(Another high depth team, Kane has proven to possibly be the best player in the world but when it comes to big international tourney he falls short, but they always seem to have top goal tending)
4.Russia(too much talent on the top end with some young potential all star Defenseman on the way, lets just see if they can Gel the talent together)
5.Finland(almost feel like putting them ahead of russia because of how good these players play together but there isn't enough talent, they need young guys like Barkov and Granlund to step up, also the Goaltending is questionable with Rinne always injured but with him 100% you can't pick against them in any game)
argentina and netherlands (female hockey)
only junior? finland was in mens final this year LUL
i dont pay much attention to hockey, but is usa actually that good?
figured we'd be just kind of an average squad
USA is gonna be really good soon they are pretty young already and they have Shane Gostisbehere coming up and Pat Kane is in his prime the usa could win gold at 2018 olympics
I think Russia is best. IMHO
is france good in hockey ?
Oh wait this is not 2000s
Russia and Canada are best tho
Czech Rep should at least be mentioned
we will see after world cup :) but honestly finland has no chance ;(
Make a top 5 is kinda like making a top 100 of country care about hockey
How about next 5?
Fuck this gets hard after 5
of all time it is
Lol swenne poor bait, finland > usa anyday. Remember last world cup? Finland was second, we'll see how badly finland will wreck usa in september.
