This is what happens when you don't look beyond numbers. He was mediocre at all of these tournaments, except the junior championship and the QF in Turin. He was OK at the WC08, was nearly invisible in 2012, and flat out sucked in 2010 (OG and WC). Nothing close to Bure, Makarov, or Kharlamov international heroics.

Oh, and Tretiak was the MVP of the Soviet league FIVE TIMES.
