CSKA Moscow roster season 1988-1989

http://http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/...017871989.html

I was going through rosters in Hockeydb and I run onto this. Quite amazing names there..

Sergei Makarov
Vladimir Krutov
Vyacheslav Bykov ( Not so famous in N-A, but hell of a player)
Valeri Kamensky
Igor Larionov
Pavel Bure
Alexander Mogilny
Alexei Kasatonov
Viacheslav Fetisov
Sergei Fedorov
Vladimir Konstantinov
Alexei Gusarov
Vladimir Malakhov
Igor Kravchuk
Edgeny Davydov(Well, kinda good )
Valeri Zelepukin
Sergei Zubov
Boris Mironov


Better than most NHL teams. Especially the defensive core is unbeliviable.

Kasatonov - Fetisov
Konstantinov - Zubov
Gusarov - Malakhov
Extras: Boris Mironov and Igor Kravchuk

Would the NHL teams had stand any chance against this team?

The real question is if an nhl all star team had a chance against these guys.

Keeping in mind that many of these players were kids just barely beginning to blossom.

The second line of Bure Fedorov Mogilny were just wee kids even when calculating that Soviet players had their prime earlier and stopped earlier as well. The names are impressive though, you are right.

Basically the Soviet national team by virtue of Central Red Army being able to use military service to keep such a team together.

The weak link was goaltending.

Usually that is right but for the 88-89 team that doesn`t hold true. Take a look at the regulars for the national team of that season.

Rarely more than 6 played together internationally. At the height of that trend there were more.

You can add Andrei Khomutov and Andrei Kovalenko to the list of star Soviets on that roster

Krutov-Larionov-Makarov
Mogilny-Fedorov-Bure
Kamensky-Bykov-Khomutov
Zelepukin-?-Kovalenko

Kasatonov Fetisov
Konstantinov-Zubov
Gusarov-Malakhov

*Oleg Petrov joined the team the following year so that forth line "hole" wasn't empty for long. I bet this group could beat any team in the world if so motivated, what a line-up!

In the late 80's the Bure-Fedorov-Mogilny line was technically the 3rd line.....still very young. Fedorov was primarily used as a defensive center back then.

Makarov - Larionov - Krutov
Khomutov - Bykov - Kamensky
Bure - Fedorov - Mogilny
Davydov - Chibirev - Vyazmikin

Fetisov - Kasatonov
Konstantinov - Gusarov
Kravchuk - Malakhov
Starikov - Stelnov

I'm not entirely sure, but Konstantinov might have still played center that season. I know that he broke into the Red Army lineup as a center, and was later switched to defense. If that's the case, there's your missing link on the fourth line.

There likely wasn't an NHL team that could have beat the 1988 CSKA team. Likewise with the possible exception of CSKA I doubt there was a Russian team that could have beat 1987 Canadian Canada Cup team. As someone else mentioned that team was as much a function of forcing military service on a player as anything else and thus could win most of the Soviet Championships in the 1970s and 1980s.
