Yeah, it seems reasonable. In the Soviet domestic league, Mikhailov was basically Kharlamov's equal offensively it seems, though Kharlamov did do a little better in voting for Soviet Player of the Year before Kharlamov's first car accident. In the World Championships, Mikhailov looks to have been the best Soviet. Kharlamov got a lot of press because he seems to have been the best Soviet in the most high profile tournaments - the 1972 and 1976 Olympics, and the beginning of the Summit Series.
