Even Gretzky didn't dominate when he played in his peak year in 1982 WC on Big Ice. He won tournament scoring title barley.

Just saying there are different ways of looking at Hockey. That's all


Mario Lemieux was one of the key players for Team Canada at the '85 Hockey Worlds. He looked very solid on big ice and helped his team win against the Soviets in the medal round.
