    The point of this thread is to see your Countries Ultimate Hockey Team based on international play. In this thread when you make your team you can't include Maurice Richard, Gordie Howe, etc. because they have never represented their country in international play. Also if the player never excelled in international competition he can't be included.

    Here's their Team Canada plus quotes they had on each:
    No. 1 Line: Ultimate combo of tenaciousness, touch, & talent
    LW John Tonelli/C Wayne Gretzky/RW Mario Lemieux
    No. 2 Line: Perfect antidote to Soviets' superstar 'KLM Line'
    LW Bob Gainey/C Mark Messier/RW Mike Bossy
    No. 3 Line: Premium clutch performers when game on the line
    LW Paul Henderson/C Phil Esposito/RW Yvan Cournoyer
    No. 4 Line: Special blend of slapshots, wrist shots, and body shots
    LW Bobby Hull/C Joe Sakic/RW Brent Sutter

    13th Forward
    Dale Hawerchuk

    No. 1 Pair: The Rock and The Roll
    LD Serge Savard/RD Bobby Orr
    No. 2 Pair: Powerful two-way duo
    LD Denis Potvin/RD Ray Bourque
    No. 3 Pair: Fastest elite combo ever
    LD Paul Coffey/RD Scott Niedermayer

    7th Defenceman
    Gary Bergman

    No. 1 Goalie
    Bill Ranford
    No. 2 Goalie
    Rogie Vachon
    No. 3 Goalie
    Grant Fuhr

    Now you get it if you didn't before. Your team also has to only have the following tournaments or competition considered: 1972 Summit Series, 1976 Canada Cup, 1981 Canada Cup, 1984 Canada Cup, 1987 Canada Cup, 1991 Canada Cup, 1996 World Cup, 1998 Olympics, and 2002 Olympics.

    The Slovak Team (I am counting players after the 1993):

    Bondra-Stumpel-Palffy
    Gaborik-Demitra-Hossa
    Zednik-P.Stastny-Satan
    Bartecko-Handzus-Rastislav Pavlikovsky

    Visnovsky-Svehla
    Sekeras-Strbak
    Cierny-Lintner

    Lasak
    Stana
    Murin/Simonovic

    I don't know much because I started watching hockey in 99 but this is probably the best line up. Probably I forgot someone.

    Howe played for Canada in the WHA-Soviet summit series in 1974, and wound up with seven points in seven games. Not bad for a 46-year-old against the top Soviet players.

    *clears throat*

    I believe I said only the following events: 1972 Summit Series, 1976 Canada Cup, 1981 Canada Cup, 1984 Canada Cup, 1987 Canada Cup, 1991 Canada Cup, 1996 World Cup, 1998 Olympics, and 2002 Olympics.

    Thanks for the reminding me anyway.

    He didn't play at any of those tournaments mentioned above I believe. Maybe in the 2002 Olympics but I'm not sure.

    No, you're right, he didn't. But neither did Gaborik.

    OTOH, considering how Slovakia was robbed at the Olympics, I guess it's just fair to include those players anyway.

    Yeah, but you said he hadn't played for Canada at all. The 74 series should probably be in there, anyhow, it was against the regular Soviet national team, just like 72, and it was a Canadian team, not a "league" team like the NHL teams in the 1978(79?) Challenge Cup and Rendez-Vous 87.

    I did say that didn't I? My bad.

    BTW, I'm only going with the events the TSN Magazine went with. They never included the 74 Summit Series.

    Bobby Clarke would have to make the team. One of the best frowards in 1972 and he captained the 1976 team.

    This is one heck of a team. The KLM is on the second line, Firsov on the third and Mogilny-Feds-Bure on the fourth. Ouch! :bow:
