Actually, it's just the opposite. The coaching and depth of the other teams proves the quality of the O6. Some AHLers in 66-67 went on to become HHoFers. You also need to look at the superior draft management where some teams like the Habs and the Wings ended up with many of the best players. (The 2012 Habs and Leafs missing the playoffs does not mean the current NHL has no quality.) Better management, a lack of parity, and one or two bad teams do not cast doubt on the quality of an entire league.
