i dont think so. I bet, that when the Canada team of 2005 would play agains some USSR team from 80s, they will be destroyed. And IMO also the Czechoslovaks from 80s would win at least 5 games from 10.

No 1980s team would get destroyed by a new age team.

DamonDRW 01-05-2013 06:13 AM

short memories. That 1989 USSR team having Bure-Fedorov-Mogilny first line and actually playing as a unit is miles ahead. But TC is Canadian after all.

I think Sergei Zubov and Dmitri Yushkevich were also in that team, was quite a good team to be honest. A few other good players were on that team such as Khristich, Oksiuta etc.

I'd suppose 2005 Canadian team is regarded the best not because they had the best top talent, but because the team was ultra deep.

Yup...

tony d 01-05-2013 07:57 AM

It was a great team, no doubt, but there have been a few better teams than them,.

Fire Julien 01-05-2013 08:26 AM

Canada was deeper in 1993 and face better competition than 2005.

GKJ 01-05-2013 08:37 AM

Well it also had the best top talent with many guys winning Cups and being scoring leaders in the NHL.

nope, sorry buddy

DaveG 01-05-2013 09:31 AM

It's up there as one of the best WJC teams of all time. Some tough competition from some of those Soviet teams though (89).

RJ8812 01-05-2013 09:33 AM

I like how some people say 2005 wasnt the best team, then proceed to not mention who they believe was better

No doubt about it. At least lately. I don't go back far enough watching the tourney to make a blatant best ever statement, but unlike most tournaments, it seemed that there was about zero chance of them losing even on a bad night.

I think people get confused thinking which team had the better players on paper after their pro careers were done. There are a ton of junior teams with NHL studs everywhere that didn't win squat. The 05 Canada team was machine-like.

habsrule4eva3089 01-05-2013 10:06 AM

There will never be a team that powerful ever again, that was the one and only dream team. The Soviet teams of the 80's were more powerful offensively at the top but the depth Canada has is unmatchable. 9 Stanley Cup winners, 6 Olympic Gold Medalists, and they're still reaching and or at their prime, they'll be plenty of more hardware for a lot of those players.

robdicks 01-05-2013 10:09 AM

There's no question.

HockeyH3aven 01-05-2013 10:12 AM

Definitely, although looking back at their goaltenders, yuck.

PhilaFlyers 01-05-2013 10:13 AM

Russia's 05 team looks pretty damn good on paper too.
