For example, in the 1980 Olympics, the Soviet Union defeated Japan 17-0. I don't think Japanese hockey has actually improved a lot since then. It is possible that it was the Japanese National Team, unless tournament rules preclude it.
This MHL selects was Amur Tigers MHL team without best/eldest guys. http://www.iihf.com/channels1213/u20ccoa/teams/mhl.html
