[QUOTE=SpartyWing86;11775276]Athletes are better now than they were many years ago. It's not that the person has changed, but the preparation for playing at the highest level has changed drastically. We know more about nutrition and physiology today than decades ago. The game has been reinvented a few times. Remember when the trap was first conceived and teams bashed their heads against the wall trying to solve it? Athletes today aren't better made, but they are better trained.

Exactly....Bobby Orr did not get the same training methods that the players of today have (that includes Lidstrom ) and we are still putting Orr ahead, that tells me something about how great Orr was.
