Between 1978 and 1981, young Makarov played with other players - mostly on the 3rd line with the Golikov brothers from Moscow Dynamo - and I'd say he was pretty darn dominant (1979 WC, Challenge Cup, 1980 Olympics etc.). I don't think Canada Cup with other players would have been any different.
Makarov wasn't dependent on anyone, certainly not more so than Bossy. He could always create his own scoring chances...
