    Kane, Toews, and Keith are a lock for their respective clubs. Crow and Seabs are probably bubble players.

    A sad day when Slovakia can’t field its own team.

    I wonder why Sweden and Finland are so far ahead of Norway in hockey.

    The amount of rinks and culture surrounding hockey in Norway has a lot to do with it.

    Number of indoor rinks and country size by kilometers.

    Canada-2,631 9,976,140 sq KM
    US-1900 9,629091 sqKM
    Sweden-358 449,964 sq km
    Finland-260 327,030 sq km
    Norway-44 324,220 sq KM

    Thanks Ernie. The population of Norway is almost half of Sweden but very close to the same as Finland. Maybe Norway being more mountainous plays a factor. Just something I’ve wondered about.
