The truth of the matter is that goaltending at the very least was on a different level in the 80's, just look at the video and defensive systems weren't as good as preventing goals as they would be in the mid 90's and beyond, yet some people deny these changes or claim there is less talent which has almost zero evidence to back up that position.

Just go watch a major junior hockey game and watch the skating then go back to an early 80's NHL game and see the difference, or really lack of it for the most part.
