Russian Quintet

Beside the famous quintet of Krutov, Larionov, Makarov, Fetisov and Kasatonov, were there any other combination of five player that were used to play together in the '80? Does a specific pair of defensemen was used with the line of Bure, Fedorov and Mogilny? Thanks!

Sykora - Malkin - Fedotenko

Gonchar - Satan

Even though only 2 of them are true Russians, they all spoke Russian together. And Satan wasn't a defenseman. >_>

Zinetula Bilyaletdinov and Vasili Pervuhkin were the "second pairing" of the Soviet National team for much of the 1980s. Not sure what their forward unit was though

It's even hard to come up with a forward line! The most famous - and best - ones were arguably Shalimov, Shepelev and Kapustin (early '80s) and Khomutov, Bykov and Kamensky (the latter part of the '80s).

The former line made its name in the 1981 Canada Cup plus 1981 and 1982 World Championships, but it did not last long, as Shalimov and Kapustin were already veteran players even in the early 1980s. Their defensemen? I'd have to watch some games, but I would guess it was mostly either Vasiliev-Babinov or Bilyaletdinov-Pervukhin.

In the case of Khomutov-Bykov-Kamensky, I would, again, have to watch some games (from the 1987 CC, for example), but Gusarov-Stelnov, maybe???

Overall, the most famous 'Russian five', outside the Green Unit of course, was Mikhailov-Petrov-Kharlamov, backed by Vasiliev-Gusev/Lutchenko, but I think even that lasted only a few years (1973-1976), and after that, it was different defensive pairings (eg. Tsygankov-Fetisov in the 1978 WCs, Tsygankov-Lutchenko in the 1979 WCs).

All in all, I would say there was never anything remotely comparable to the Green Unit (i.e. playing together for almost a decade).

Kozlov-Larionov-Fedorov-Fetisov-Konstantinov

I thought Bilyaletdinov and Pervuhin played with Kamensky-Bykov-Khomutov. Kamensky was one of my favorite Russian players in the NHL, despite playing for Colorado.

I didn't know Czechs and Slovaks knew how to speak Russian. My dad told me they learn in though. Fedotenko while I guess is not a true Russian was born in a city (Kiev, Ukraine) where more people spoke Russian than Ukrainian.

I don't know about CSKA Moscow 1986-1987, but on the Soviet National Team the Kamensky-Bykov-Khomutov line first played together in February 1987. Two months later Bilyaletdinov played his last major tournament for the National Team.

If I'm not mistaken the players that were on the ice to concede the winning goal of the 1987 Canada Cup were:
Khomutov-Bykov-Kamensky
Stelnov-Kravchuk
