Pardon?

The raw scoring totals were lower yeah, but it wasn't harder to dominate then.

The NHL wasn't nearly as deep in the early 50's as it was even in the later 50's and 60's, some of the older guys here would probably attest to that. The NHL still lacked parity from the war compared to an average NHL season.
