The difference is that instead of one stream, Canadian, now there is a seceond equally as good, at least in the top 20 scoring logs and other areas of measurement, from the non Canadian countries that were pre 1980ish virtually non existent in the NHL.
The point of the matter that expansion also changes the dynamics of the NHL during the late 60's and beyond.
It seems that some are focusing on what they think I'm saying, maybe they are drawing their own conclusions from the data who knows, instead of actually reading what I'm actually saying.
I have no idea if hockey is "better" in 1974, 84 or 08, it's a subjective thing.
My focus has been drawing attention to context when evaluating players from different eras, heck even different teams within a similar NHL season.
