It's all "You saw him back then, he's weak and frail."
My main argument has always been the extreme improvement in goaltending. No doubt, if groomed in the way athletes are today he would be elite. But goalies have this thing called the butterfly now and equipment twice the size. He'd probably put up points, but nobody is scoring at the pace he did ever again.
