You guys really need someone who actually knows statistics.
Statistics are only meaningful if you start with the right assumptions. Anyone who truly understands statistics can tell you that.

In the 1980s, every team in the league was offense-first, which is why EVERYONE had an easier time scoring.

So the Canadiens were much better than other teams and it was harder to score on them. But how many games did other teams actually play against the Canadiens? 6-8 games out of an 80 game schedule? That is so much less significant than that a league where it was easier to score against every team.
