I mean, even the young Sergei Makarov was only a 3rd line player in 1979! (played with the Golikov brothers from Dynamo Moscow). And then there was a certain Vladislav Tretiak.
In 1981-82, the 2nd line of Kapustin, Shepelev and Shalimov played brilliantly; in fact, it could be argued that they were the best Soviet line in the 1981 Canada Cup and 1982 World Championships. And again, the 3rd and 4th lines were stronger than around 1987... plus Tretiak.
Stronger 3rd and 4th?
Soviet team of 87-88' had a great 3rd line from the Dynamo Moscow Lomakin-Semak and Nemchinov
someone named Yuri Khmylev from the Soviet Wings club became a notable center for the Buffalo Sabres along Dale Hawerchuk and Alexander Mogilny.
Sergei Svetlov and Anatoly Semenov weren't too shabby either, all of them scored goals and weren't just "travelers" on that team.
