there are no "strange" times when there are some half a million registered hockey players in canada. its statistically impossible. last group is underrated OR first 2 groups are SEVERELY overrated..

BTW: selanne for me over any last group player..

I think it is a little less simple than this. There have always been great players in the NHL and always will. There is never an easy time to win a major award in the NHL. Period. However, it has been brought up that Dionne would have had an easier time standing out in certain seasons in his career and I pointed out that this is simply not true.
