You're moving the goalposts.

Regardless, the 1980 upset doesn't change that USSR did beat Canada on a consistent basis. When the Soviet "A" team sent, they defeated Canada/NHL's best at least once in games.
*1972 SS
*1974 SS
*1979 Challenge Cup
*1981 Canada Cup
*1984 Canada Cup
*1987 Rendez-vous
*1987 Canada Cup

Not only is that a fairly consistent was a regular occurrence.
