Even the "deserving talent" when allowed into the league in the 1st wave of expansion didn't hit the elite, ie top scoring right away.
The elite talent of the mid 90's from Europe pretty much did.
It's a circle you can't square red herrings or pink salmon aside.
Who exactly is not getting enough respect?
You keep saying over and over again that today's players should get their own sticky, so who are these players that are being disrespected???
