I'm not trying to be an asshole, especially given that I'm new here, but I couldn't help but chime in here, because I am Canadian and it's unfortunately programmed into me to take every chance given to me to talk about hockey. Sorry for the rant. :P

This is last years average for players and their nationality in the NHL. Also, keep in mind all the countries massive population differences.
Definitely wasn't picking a fight. I'm perfectly ok with looking at data and saying "I was wrong" if I was trying to make a valid point. Which I wasn't attempting to do. It's so cute that everytime I post something, which isn't even all that often lately, people get defensive.
