No russian club would have won a 7 game series against the Montreal Candiens or the Flyers in the 70's.


Sorry, not going to happen.

If the Habs had the same circumstances as the CSKA and bolstered their lineup with the Sabres French connection line, remember Perrault, Martin and Robert, and did a tour of the Soviet league, they would have equally or won more games thans CSKA.

So those hits were not even questionable?
If by eased up you mean that they did not throw violent elbows to the head only a few seconds apart anymore, then ok maybe.

That victory deserves belittling as it was an embarrassment to the NHL. You think non-North American fans watching this game were impressed?

CSKA was not bolstered by any line.

That's a joke. In 1n 1975 there were two additions to CSKA lineup.

To start with, CSKA always represented 15 member of the CCCP team.

The Habs good as they were, in 1976 Canada Cup had only 6 natioanl team members.

So when the CSKA played those touring games, they were more htan a split squad of the CCCP.

In 70-ties there were no more than 10 members in the USSR National Team selected from CSKA (the Red Army Club).

I guess we should belittle the soviet olympic accomplishments because they faced second rate competition.

No one is changing anyone's mind anymore. This has served its purpose.
