1992 Olympics - Unified Team (Russia, etc.) defeats Canada (no NHL players)
1994 Olympics - Sweden defeats Canada (no NHL players)
1996 Canada Cup - USA defeats Canada
1998 Olympics - Czech defeats Russia
2002 Olympics - Canada defeats USA (NHL players)
2002 World Championships - Slovakia defeats Russia
2006 Olympics - Sweden defeats Finland
2006 World Championships - Sweden defeats Czechoslovokia
2007 World Championships - Canada defeats Finland
2008 World Championships - Russia defeats Canada
2009 World Championships - Russia defeats Canada
2010 Olympics - Canada defeats USA

I'm sure the 2008 and 2009 are pretty fresh in the minds of Canadian hockey fans.
in 1996 it was a world cup..and it was to date america's best team...yes you are right the '07 and '08 losses hurt but then again a lot of is luck based who is and isn't in the playoffs..
