Thus the crux of the matter. Soviets upset cuz we had some players who were rough and tough all whilst they get in their more "subtle" cheap shots. Officials who blatantly cheated for them and then they get appalled when we man up and voice our distaste for the obviousness of it.

And now worst of all the revisionist historians who make it sound like Canada were devils and the innocent poor Soviets who did no wrong. It's disgusting.

I'm interested to hear from 'Dennis Bonvie' about his reasoning for his agreement with Dryden.
