Eddie Shore, Doug Harvey may have played in a different time than Bobby Orr and Brad park and a much different era than Niklas Lidstrom and Ray Bourque but we cannot act as though its incomparable.
From the 20's to now... the game is very much the same. There are two teams who battle to score one neutral puck into the opposing teams goal which is being guarded by that opposing team and their respective goalies. They played with sticks, they played with skates and it was on ice. The game is very much the same...
The technology now is far greater. A stick today can help many shoot faster but shooting harder does not mean your a great player. being faster does not mean your a greater player. Being a good player has to do with your hockey IQ. great analogy above with the movies!
