Then and Now USA

The most popular activity in the history section is trying to compare hockey and its players across eras. Usually this is done against a background that makes certain assumptions, bigger = better, faster = better, etc.

Let's try to get a clearer picture by looking at two decades, 1970 to 1979 and 2000-2009.Player eligibility is rather simple - one game in the NHL or WHA or for the respective national team inc junior.

Please present a list of the top 25 USA hockey players 1970-79 and 2000-2009.Arguments appreciated.

Thank you.
