In the wake of recent results at the World Juniors, will anyone agree that these mentioned nations are emerging hockey powers? or at least hockey nations? This year, Germany defeats USA, Slovakia (both big 7 nations) This year, Belarus defeats Finland (a team that had tukka rask in net) also defeated the only gold medal winning US jr. squad a couple of years back. This year, the Swiss just defeated the guys who edged the Finns, not to mention, tied the Americans last year, defeated the olympic canadian, czech teams. they also defeated a world championship russian team a few years back. Does anyone notice the trend here??? Agree or Disagree?
