Only the most ardent raw stat guys don't take this into context, most understand it was harder to score in the 90's.
It wasnt harder to score in the 90's. The Game has and continues to evolve. Up until the mid 90's the Goalie Equipment was smaller and heavier then it is now. Which is a key component to why there was more scoring. The Game has become a lot more competitive, there are a lot more Hockey programs now developing more Hockey players, which mean, there is more talent to choose from, which makes it even harder to be good enough to play in the NHL. We will never see a player dominate like Gretzky, its not happening. Which Makes it even more special to see a Guy Like Sidney Crosby put up 56Pts in 35 Games, unfortunately a freak puck to the face robbed us of seeing more greatness.
