    The 72 series is up there too, at least for Canadians. Pretty epic- and brutally violent- series with lots of political stuff.

    With those "Soviet vs. NHL Stars" games it's really hard to judge.
    On one hand, the Soviets did win most games.
    On the other, they were a team that practically lived together and practiced together, under the same system, for years.

    Soviets also play a different style of Hockey, they played like a team, their passing & skating was incredible. They were about setting up an offense patiently passing until they had great shot. The NHL was more of a brawling & capitilizing on break aways and taking lots of shots.
    Anyways, that is the I remember it as I was pretty young at the time.
