And Canada are the only multiple gold medal winners since then.At the NHL draft, the total number of Canadians picked has dropped below 100 the last three years, the first time that has happened in, like, forever. In 1995, Canada had 138 players taken in the draft.The Americans had 16 selected.Since then coinciding with the USA Hockey decision to centralize its under 17 and under 18 teams starting in 1996, under the National Team Development Program banner the number of Americans drafted has climbed steadily through the decade (2000 2009), topping 60 players in five of those 10 years, 59 in another and never less than 45.We seen the number of Canadians taken dip to decades low levels.We call them “damn Yankees,” tongue in cheek, of course.But in the depths of this lockout, Canadians might be feeling like hockey at its highest levels the game whose character reflects what we perceive to be our own, unflinching in a sometimes cruel and cold environment, the game we nurtured before sending it out into the world is slipping away from us.And it not the Russians, who first made us realize hockey was not ours to exclusively dominate.
