by the same token, could Richter play in an era without forward passing? Or how about pre-slapshot? Or without a mask?
To say a player from a certain era or league is inherently inferior violates the spirit of the draft.
I apologize if I get a bit too heated when discussing this. It just angers me that someone involved in this process could be so dismissive of the ideology behind an all-time draft.
