Was hockey better in the 80s?

Yes, scoring was much higher, but do you feel the game was more enjoyable? For those like me who weren't old enough to watch hockey in those days, you might have seen some classic hockey game sometime, NHL Network used to show some games from the 80s (maybe they still do, I don't have access to the channel anymore so I wouldn't know).

The common argument defending modern hockey is that more goals doesn't equal more scoring chances. I disagree.

From what I've seen there were always scoring opportunities and interesting plays, no useless puck dumping. The game looked much more exciting than it looks now.
