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.
I have a better idea. Why don't don't you go put on a pair of skates from the '80s and skate a 90 second shift in them and get back to us and tell us how you skated just as fast as you did in a contemporary pair of skates for a 45 second shift. I'm all ears.
