But the truth is that, you take someone like Lindstrom and send him back 50 years and he would dominate in ways no one back then could even imagine. Thats not to say a player back then was not amazing, its just the skill, athleticism, power etc. has evolved so much that you cant compare across eras like this.
Maybe but I have no idea which Lindstrom you are sending back.

None are very good players.

Still amazes me how often people do this, especially in threads where the correct spelling is in almost every post and at the top of the page. Sorry just a pet peeve as a Detroit fan, I am sure this kind of screw up is annoying with Bourque fans and his name as well. Also shows something about this source that they did it in an article while trying to show some sort of mastery on the subject, pretty bad.
