It was definitely more fun to watch. The biggest difference for me in comparing the two eras is the red line. Put the red line back in today's game and you will see scoring go down and pace come to a stand still. The emphasis on defensive systems over the past 20 years is evident. However, if the NHL increased the size of the ice to European standards, put the red line back in and continued to call infractions as they are now, we may see a return to more run and gun style hockey. Today's players have the skill and creativity to turn the game into more of a spectacle. Let's give them a chance to show those skills off more. Also, the NHL should reduce the size of goalie equipment and bring back wooden sticks. Sigh, I dream a lot.
