THat is pretty interesting since people always argue that todays skaters are faster and better in every aspect of the game...and how Gretzky would barely break 100 points a game...
its all hogwash, i think with all the rules now, Gretz would have more space than ever before.
Overall, glad to see kopitar have some fun with Erickson. They looked good together. The whole kessel ordeal was kinda of funny...
