Top 10 International Hockey Teams


The Top Ten

1 Canada

the birthplace of the sport, most nhl players are canadian, the most support for the sport, and we only have 6 teams in canada? americans don't deserve such an amazing sport as we do, stick to their baseball or football, damn I'm so proud to be canadian!

About 60% of the NHL players are Canadian. Historically, Canada has won the most World Junior titles (16) and the most World Championship medals (47).
Presently, Canada is the 2 time defending men's Olympic Champion, defending World Junior champion, defending World Champion and 4 time defending women's Olympic Champion.
Enough said.

EH O CANADA GO... and how could you say there not... on top of having the best players... they just one the olympics... boys and girls (Y)

Ghytgb sucks.

America's hockey team is awesome Canada and Russia/Soviet union are definitely the best with Finland good to Canada you only won in 2010 because it was in Canada America may not have won as many as you but we almost always have had a gold silver or bronze medal besides we are all good it is a good sport and getting better can not wait until next winter Olympics oh and not all Americans are fat just some being an American makes me believe that the miracle on ice was amazing with the Finnish beating Canada for their first gold medal anyway everybody is good Go USA.

We did not just win because we were in Canada. We kicked America's ass on their home turf in 2002. Salt lake that is in USA. Also we Canadians lost 1996 World Cup. THAT WAS IN Canada ALSO. Canada won because we have better players like Crosby you brainwashed ass hat. Go to hell if you think Canada only won because of home turf. Your team beat Canada in 1996 World Cup and we got our sweet revenge with gold in 2002 on your home turf. USA tried to also get payback after we got payback in '02 but you failed in 2010.

Usa has to be a top contender as we can beat Canada, Finland and other top teams. Seriously not all of us are fat. Canada is also a pretty good contender but we can beat them, as we had chances to.

They will win

Sweden is solid fantastic sci-fi oldest club, good defense and combination to ice. Solid players, Zetterberg expert to attack.

The Sweden is no limite team, good up intellect players to ice, three crown to yellow and blue dress. Super big defense, rival is Canada and Czech Republic.

Sweden have beautiful blue dress is three crown, good players: Mats Sundin, Daniel Alfredson and history legend goal keeper Tommy Salo.

8 Slovakia

I think Slovakia should be ranked higher than 8th because they have beaten almost every team last year making it to the finals, USA has not beat them as many times as Slovakia has beat them, and they have an outstanding quality if players like Zdeno Chara, Satan, Marian Gaborik, and many more.

The slovak national team made a huge progress since the 90's and Slovakia with its population only about 5 millions has many outstanding players playing in the world's best leagues

Slovakia plays very very nice hockey. Nicer than Czech, Germany, Finland, Sweden.

They're bad now, but I hope that they'll surprise.

10 Latvia

It's almost a miracle for such a small country with the population of roughly two million to have an international level hockey team that can compete with most of the hockey grands.

Latvian Hockey Team is National Pride!

Latvian hockey team is best of the world!

The Contenders

11 Pakistan

Pak in top 5 best team hockey Pakistan national game is hockey who we you forget it and its correct position is number 5 only one team who win world cup 4 time so mind it this time some problem in Pakistan so these all effects in game

Pakistan should 4 as it has won most world cups I don't understand why India is there when Pakistan has beat them mostly of time and don't understand why USA and Canada are top 7

I agree, Pakistan should be 4, I mean not should, but ARE NUMBER 4! This website is biased
