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

I do believe in 96 for sure. 98.. do they get past Hasek with him? Maybe, but Hasek was just that good in 98 so it could really go either way.
Canada did win in 02 with Mario in the team but I do think bigger ice surely is a bigger factor than some might think, maybe that is just me but I really do think it. I do to this day still believe that Sweden would have won the 2002 if they didnt crap the bed against Belarus, but they did and they've got no one but them selves to blame for it.
What do you think, do Sweden get past Belarus and win the Olympics in 2002 with a healthy Peter Forsberg ? He came and won the MVP just the year after so he was surely in his prime at the time.
