Of course skating looks better now without that stuff in the NHL anymore.
I'm sorry but the 80s were definelty NOT part of the clutch and grab era. Not even close. That was pickup hockey with little to no defense and goalies with almost no pads and apparently no reflexes.
The clutch and grab started primarily with the NJ devil and lemaire in 92-93. Even the year before when the Kings went to the final was more wide open than that. From there it was all down hill as all the teams with less talent started emulating the trap from the devils.
