Today's players are definitely leaps and bounds above what we had in the 50's, but they also have a plethora of advantages that weren't common back then.

However if you took present day Subban with his composite stick and his intense training schedule, transplant him directly into the 40's-60's, yeah, he'd score a ton, probably at will.

Akin to giving a WW1 soldier a present day automatic rifle. It would be devastating.

Here's an interesting GIF I saw today. Dryden getting a little help from his friends:
Espo didn't miss many from that spot. He was devastating. I never liked the Bruins, but always admired Esposito after the '72 Russia-Canada series. He pulled the Canadians' jockstraps right back into that series when it look liked the Soviets were going to roll. Great hockey.
