Yeah different times. Ted Lindsay was chased off the team for starting a union and stopped possibly one of the greatest dynasties ever from happening
Howie Morenz is an interesting case. He's generally regarded as "the first superstar" and an All-Time great, yet he was outscored more often than not by Marty Barry and Barry posted comparable career PPG. Was he so far ahead in other areas of the game that Barry was *ordinary* while Morenz was an All-Time great? I would need to know more about Morenz to find out the answer.
