So the OP thinks that the 1984 US group rivals 1985 Canada?

1985 Canada:

Horton Bergeron Perry
Ladd Carter Getzlaf
Dawes Richards Stewart
MacArthur Zajac Fehr
Fraser

Phaneuf Weber
Burns Seabrook
Coburn Green
Quincey

Glass
Beauchemin

You know what, I think I might just go with the Canadian group here. When you take into account how good the players actually were at the time, the gap is even larger than it appears.

If you're talking about players eligible for the 2004 WJC, then we can add:

Nash, Eric Staal, Bouchard, Girardi, White, Campoli, Fleury, Ward and others.

If we're talking about the 2004 WJC, then we can add Crosby as well.

You could make a case that the 1984 US age group turned out better than 1984 Canada, but the assertion that USA had more talent available for the 2004 WJC is crazy.
