The article was good.

The importance back then, from the 50s to the 70s was more significant because homegrown talent was the best talent. In today's world, talent is more spread out through Canada and the States as well. Plus, we are seeing the emergence of more amazing European players, so it's no surprise.

I'll take the two American defenders, the talented Finnish winger and the goalie from Vancouver, BC, if it means they are better then the homegrown talent that was available.
