Uhm... OK. Feel free to explain the nail-biting nature of the USSR-Canada contests if Soviet players were massively inferior.

Then players from the 60s, 70s and 80s should be viewed the same way. Hasn't hockey made any progress in the last 25 years?
Do we have to take it to the absurd? Hockey evolved much more from the O6 days to the 1980s than in the past 25 years. Even the lockout changes were not as drastic. Selanne, Jagr, and other stars of the "dead puck era" did just fine after the lockout. OTOH very few stars of the 70s made a smooth transition into the late 80s-early 90s.
