Yeah and the purists here don't want to discuss that.

The game is not the same as when Bobby Orr could do so many end to end rushes through entire teams and score.

Nowadays, the lower end players are closer to the top end ones due to massive conditioning improvements and "system above all" type play, that makes it tons harder for those kinds of fancy plays to occur.

It's just my personal opinion, but I think that's a bad thing....
