I agree with Zine - you've vastly overblown the national team concept, seemingly as an explanation for Canada's shocking vulnerability. Your explanation attempts to preserve the notion of Canadian superiority. Sure, when you watch the film, it looks like the Soviets are skating every bit as well or better than the best Canadian NHL'er's; they stickhandle just as well or better; they pass better; and they shoot as well or better; but its just Merlin's illusions, brought on by grueling practices. Practices just don't make a player that much better.
