[QUOTE=Gros Bill]It's very difficult to compare different eras. I'll just leave at this : hockey is a very exciting game, and has been for as long as I can remember.

Me, I really enjoyed the Habs-Bruins game 7 from '79, on RDS. In the 3rd period and OT, Lafleur was everywhere - he had a lot of talent, it's true, but it's his determination that really showed through. He really wanted that puck! Robinson was no slouch, either. I'd forgotten that Guy Lapointe got pretty badly injured in that game, too.

And, of course, the Don Cherry melt-down is a classic; I never had much respect for his coaching abilities (or his thoughts on hockey, for that matter) after that sorry spectacle.

So all in all, a very enjoyable game [/QUOTE Good point on the level of determination. Watching the Red Army game, it remnided me how certain palyers were just pure competitors. You can reminisce about Cournoyer's speed and explosiveness but his best attribute was that he just wanted to score more than the guy opposite him. You can say that for most of that 70's team, including the Tremblay's and Risebrough's.

Oh and does anybody else agree that it was a lot more wide open hockey back then and the players were much better passers then now?
It was exciting the first couple of years, but then it became a bit boring since they were always winning. And Bowman employed a more boring trapping style in the last couple years.
