Well you're half right, The NHL didn't send players in 1980 so the U S team didn't beat Canada's best. They did beat the best from overseas though. So that was great. Although I guess we could say Sweden didn't have the services of Salming.

If it was just amateurs it would be the same as the WJC's and we already do that every year.
