i think to be fair, we need to look at recent history.
otherwise, we will have to include USA into the discussion as well...
Malaysia is an interesting case. the last time MAS won TC was 1992, after that, there have been no WC/TC/UC/SC/OG gold. but at the same time, they have a lot of silvers, which also carries some weight.

Denmark has won an Olympic gold in 1996, and have also won the occasional WC (in XD/MD) and have been consistent semi-finalists in TC and SC. overall, Denmark has a very balanced team.

Malaysia may be a shadow of its former self, but I think its men's doubles will continue to shine in the future as it always has
with world class coaches like Tan Kim Her or Choong Tan Fook showing the way,this speciality will make it even the
envy of China.

Big One can already lar, no need to compete. We know which nation's flag means that no matter how unknown he/she is it's not gonna be any pushover.
