    What has happened in last 3 years to US producing elite or near elite D?
    Its cost them at least one Gold for certain and maybe more.

    The US produced significantly better Jr talent at D from players born
    1955-57. O'Connell, Larson, Langway and Roberts were way more talented
    than everyone but Hughes. Defensively Ken Morrow was better than any dman last 3 years. This doesn't even factor Mark Howe as a Dman but
    a forward then.

    I'm told US is producing talent galore now, but the Jr age group
    43-45 years ago was much better.

    It is indeed. I was also looking back at old footage from 1954 Ice Hockey World Championships - Wikipedia.
    Very interesting to see just how far Finland has come in 66 years. Finland lost to Canada 20-1 at that tournament. Now here today they only are losing 5-0. Very good improvement!

    I was in college when Matti Hagman came over
    from Finland and played for Don Cherry's
    B's.

    That means in 66 years you will beat Canada 20-1.
