Yeah. As far as i can tell russian hockey of the eighties was roughly as good as during the earlier generation, and no-one there dominated the league like he did. Perhaps there was a few more stars during the seventies i dont know, but i cant believe that Makarov, Krutov, Larionov, Fetisov and Kasatonov were worse than Kharlamov and the bunch, at their respective rank amongst them.
