However I don't think Guerin played. Brind'Amour and Barnes were the Canada guns, while Roenick
dominated.
when you look at NHL success the 70 birth year for the US is way ahead of Canada, and thats what I meant by that. Even the collection of dmen for the US did more as a group than Canada did : Carney, Bylsma, Hedican, Hill, Tamer, Zmolek, etc all had pretty long productive NHL careers. Nothing earth shattering, but a solid group of core dmen that had some solid years in the NHL.


It is always a close battle between these two countries every single year at the junior level, outside of maybe a few years over the past 20 years, these two teams are usually pretty close in terms of talent though the outcome has favored Canada much more....but as of late that is changing
