Things are not ''tailing off'' the depth is enlargening and reaching proportions Canada has never ever seen. Would be humerous right now had those players played in the WJC we'd be talking about a 7 or 8 year repeat championship performance. Had those 8 players been on this current WC team they'd still be able to contend for a Gold Medal. That's not ''tailing off.''
Don't forget, Russia was also missing players in the past to NHL, AHL... Guys like Burmistrov, Grachev, Kulikov, Avtsin, Loktionov

And anyway, if you compare this series to 2007, might as well compare to 1990's 1980's .. it would be just as (ir)relevant.

Completely different generation of players, system and so on..
