Well if you watched that interview with C.Johansson on Caps video, he said exactly that -- he fears that size & speed of today's players is making creativity secondary.

And I agree with that -- I can't really watch non-Game-7 playoff hockey that doesn't involve the Caps, even other teams that I like, while there's a ton of sports where I can thoroughly enjoy pretty random games.

What's interesting is that soccer also seemed to me headed that way somewhat, and suddenly Barcelona & Spain arrived and changed everything. Though it's hard to see a comparable phenomenon come about in hockey..
