Krutov and the Soviet national team

In the Soviet national team, Krutov made his debut at the 1980 Olympics. At the time, the attacker was devoted to CSKA, led by Viktor Tikhonov, for three seasons and proved to be a successful striker. It was at this time that Viktor Tikhonov trained the national hockey team. Therefore, he invited a famous hockey player to the Olympics in the United States.

And although many considered the Olympic Games silver as a failure of the national team, then excellent hockey players of the time, like Petrov and Mikhailov, left it, they were replaced by a new galaxy of USSR stoned hockey players, including Vladimir Krutov with a separate diamond.

Literally shortly after this Olympics, the hegemony of the Soviet national team in ice hockey began. During this decade, the national team lost just a few tournaments, and this was also a great feat of Vladimir Krutov. Last year, when Krutov played for the national team, it was 1989. That year, the Soviet national team won the world championship in Sweden.

Partner of Vladimir Krutov

If we talk about Krutov’s partners, in the top three attacks he said, he was extremely lucky. As written above, Valery Kharlamov is an example for Krutov, and in his first years performing both in CSKA and in the Soviet national team, he was fortunate not only to play in the same team with his idol, but also played with him in the same attacking army.

In this way, there was a change of generations in both CSKA and the Soviet national team. Petrov, Mikhailov and Kharlamov were replaced by Makarov, Krutov and Larionov. Moreover, this generation change happens gradually and young hockey players not only play in the same team with famous athletes, but also learn from them.

Therefore, the rotation is almost painless. It was in the absence of continuity that Vladimir Evgenevich Krutov saw the problem of modern Russian hockey.

In interviews, he noted that young athletes often have no one to learn: as soon as a person reaches a certain form, he is immediately invited to go abroad, and bridges Inexperienced hockey no longer learns from him to replace him.
