According to the latest IIHF Poll

Canada is #1!!
After surfing around the latest link that I added to the Essential Hockey Websites listed at the left, NHL Network (actually it was TSN) had an article reporting that for the next World Championships and carrying over to the new format in the Winter Olympics. The top 8 teams automatically qualify for the Turin Olympic games.

Based on recent international competition wins and overall reputation, Canada was listed #1 like a national champions poll in NCAA Football. In no particular order... Slovakia, USA, Finland, Germany, Czech Republic, Sweden and Russia round out the top 8. The last place team was Turkey listed as 43rd.

Turkey has a hockey team?
