Updated Cumulative Best on Best Score: Canada 6 - Rest of the World 4

There have been 10 best on best hockey tournaments, starting with the inaugural Canada Cup in 1976, and culminating to date with the 2010 Olympics.

Thus far, Canada has won 6 times, while the entire rest of the world combined has won only 4 times.

Here are the details:

Year Tournament - Winner / Runner-up

1976 Canada Cup - Canada / Czechoslovakia

1981 Canada Cup - USSR / Canada

1984 Canada Cup - Canada / Sweden

1987 Canada Cup - Canada / USSR

1991 Canada Cup - Canada / USA (I'm not counting in the total though this in the total since the USSR and Czech teams were weakened due to the fall of the Iron Curtain. They didn't send their "best".)

1996 World Cup - USA / Canada

1998 Olympics - Czech Republic / Russia

2002 Olympics - Canada / USA

2004 World Cup - Canada / Finland

2006 Olympics - Sweden / Finland

2010 Olympics - Canada / USA

Totals:

Canada 6 wins / 2 runners-up
USA 1 win / 2 runners-up
Russia/USSR 1 win / 2 runners-up
Sweden 1 win / 1 runner-up
Czech Republic 1 win
Finland 0 wins / 2 runners-up
Czechoslovakia 0 wins / 1 runner-up

Canada Rules!!!!
