Was hockey better in the 80s?

I also liked hockey better before this whole shootout/overtime loss nonsense. The standings are confusing to look at now, it's harder to get a read on a team now as opposed to when the standings were merely won/lost/tied.
Looking at the 2011-2012 standings, 17 out of 30 teams have 90 points or better?! Remember when a 90-point season meant you were in the upper tier of the league?
I also don't like the parity of the league in the 30-team era. I liked it better when there were great teams, average teams and downright awful teams. Looking at the 2011-2012 season, the greatest goals for/goals allowed differential was only 67 goals?!?! And the worst was 60 goals?!?! It's like the league is a whole bunch of mediocre teams now and the only reason for going to a game is to see a marquee star.
Yeah, this is sort of off-topic to the theme of the thread but I had to rant!
