This might be the only time this has occurred. In fact the 1984 group of US players
is the best group of players ever produced in the US and rivals the 1985 Canada group.
Here is a Team USA 1984:

G - Howard - Mannino

D - Wisniewski - Stuart - Carle - Richmond - Smaby - Lundin - Gilroy

F - Kesler - Backes - Boyle - Parise - Booth - Eaves - Brown - Miller - Stirling - Moore - Weiner -
Parse
You can't judge these players as finished products. Many were vastly different players at junior level. The 1985 Canadians were better as juniors.
