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.

Thoughts?
for those who watched the game

9 times out of ten you would get a high scoring, fight filled entertaining game.

The only good part of living in Edmonton in the 80's was watching the oilers in their games--even when they sucked they rocked
