I wouldn't say it makes all the difference. However, it is certainly an impact. I think the lack of legitimate third/fourth liners is one of the main reasons why Canada always struggles in the modern Olympics. Even when they win it all, they get pushed to the brink by vastly inferior teams, such as the U.S., in part because they ask superstars to play as role players.
