Does Canada ever lose a major tournament with Mario Lemieux playing in all of them?

2006 Mario had nothing left in the tank, he couldn't have played even if he wanted to.
now 1996-98 was a different story;
1995-96 Pittsburgh Penguins NHL 70 69 92 161
1996-97 Pittsburgh Penguins NHL 76 50 72 122
he was healthy in the fall of 1996 and would have been the best player in that tournament. I think that's enough to get Canada over the top.
1998 as well; that team also had Sakic and Kariya injured and guys like Keith Primeau, an aging Trevor Linden, and Rob Zamuner on the team. Depth at forward was thin. Seeing as how they only needed one goal, Mario should have been able to make a positive impact.
