The original reference to depth players and more of from the US was from the 92-93 season (C1958 post and your response) so the 99 reference now is a bit confusing.

Seriously?

The result of an international best on best single elimination tournament has absolutely nothing to do with the talent in the day to day NHL.

If it did I would just point out the 1996 World Cup winners as more proof that I'm correct and you're wrong.
Really two countries playing head to head on a best on best has absolutely nothing to do with the talent in the day to day NHL.

Uh, I don't think so.

It's not the US performed way over their heads in 80 or anything, they had a very strong team in that tournament.

Kane is as talented as any American late 80's early 90's US player IMO.
