There's a great thread going about the gretaest international team ever assembled. Since those are limited to teams at one tournament, I thought it would be neat to look at it at a broader sense and rate teams over a number of years based on championships. Here's a few I thought of and feel free to add others worthy of mentioning. These are not in order of who I think are the best. 1963-71 USSR - World Champions. Nine consecutive gold medals. This record will likely never be matched again. The competition was not as close as today but they still won all those games. 1978-83 USSR - World Champions. Another streak likely to never be matched at five. Again the competition wasn't as close as today but it was getting better. 1974-80 USSR - World Junior Champions. Seven straight gold medals. As with the senior teams listed above, the competition wasn't as close as today but once again, they still won. 1984,87,91 Canada - Canada Cup Champions. Three straight championships against the best teams in the world. 1993-97 Canada - World Junior Champions. My pick as the greatest international dynasty. This tournament had become very competitive by then with four to six teams having a shot a gold each year. 1998-2001 Czech Republic National Program. These teams won the 1998 Olympic gold, 2000-01 World Junior Gold and the 1999,2000-01 World Championship gold. To be the reigning champs in all three during an incredibly competitive era is impressive.
