In a one game knockout tournament where one team was playing together day after day, year after year, I'd venture that the Soviets would have won more gold medals than Canada. Even with the older Olympic group formats they probably would have won more. This is mostly because they played as one team year round and would be much more ready to play than an all star group of Canadians who get together only once every four years.

...and the Swedes and Czechoslovakians wouldn't be half bad either.
