International teams that had the highest % of their best players

The thing that irks me with the 72 Canadian team is that Dennis Hull played. Now I imagine Bobby gave him his blessing and Dennis was representing his country for the first time so I'll give him a break, but that whole political thing just reeks. And Canada was supposed to be representing democracy!
The 81 Canada Cup team is kind of an in betweener. Not their highest percentage of top players, but still a very good lineup. Change two names and you got another elite lineup.
Roy being left off of the 91 team was no surprise. Up to then, he was really quite streaky, often unstable. Perhaps the pressure of playing in Montreal does that to players. He really found a consistent elite game around 93 and after he left. Maturity I suppose. Also, I am amazed at how many guys decided not to play. I wonder if the Lindros pick was a factor or was it Keenan?
