Hmm. 84 versus 84 is pretty close.

Nash - Staal - Bouchard
Tambellini - Talbot - D. Jones
Paille - Brodziak - Clarkson
Eager - Brent - Prust
McLeod - Westgarth

Garrison - Girardi
White - Gorges
Campoli - Klein
O'Byrne - Ranger

Ward - Fleury - Harding

I'd prefer Canada's first line but the U.S. has the better depth up front. Defense is relatively close but you'd have to give Canada the edge with a bit more quality both on the front and back ends. Obviously Canada has a huge edge in net.

You can argue USA '84 versus Canada '84. USA '84 versus Canada '85 isn't even remotely close.
