You don't have to be as skillful today . Just learn to play positional and let the gear do the rest.

Uuuuuh, not as good when you're comparing your avg goalie vs. league elites. Why not try comparing eras of hockey; why the league is struggling with scoring output and pretty much a lot of the current changes to the game is an effort to remedy that.
