I think that Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr and Howe would easily be better than current stars. Their natural ability (hockey sense and skill) was so high. Would they rip everyone to pieces? Yes, but those pieces would be a bit bigger nowadays. I can Gretzky scoring around 190 points and close to 80 goals in his best years. All this, if he is born in 1987, or so.
But other talented players like Bossy or Richard would not be able to put a very wide gap between them and the others, in current time and date. They were not simply that far above in natural ability.
