How much higher scoring were the 1980s than the early 90s? Not much. Very comparable offensive environment. And the biggest difference in offense is that the bottom-liners were scoring less on-average in the 90s; the early 90s had MORE "high-scoring" forwards despite a slight decrease in overall goals. 1992-93 is a great example - lower average goals per game than the 80s, but more 100-point scorers than any year ever. And there were guys like Lindros and Fedorov who were on-pace to do it. In the 80s, you had maybe 8 or 10 100-point players. Not 20+.
