A reminder that this forum is not the place for "Evolution of Hockey" threads, where people who have experienced the "blinding flash of the obvious" come to the conclusion that all players today are better than any players in history, and make implications that Guy Lafleur wouldn't be able to crack an NHL roster today.
In this forum, the history of the sport is to be respected.
One exception to this note - and I've already mentioned this to one particular fan of this theory. We will allow for an all-purpose "Evolution of Hockey" thread here, with the understanding that (1) everyone acts like an adult, (2) everyone treats everyone else like an adult, and (3) the topic remains in this thread.
The history of hockey board exists to discuss the history of hockey in all its aspects. More and more, we have been having problems with posters hijacking multiple topics to discuss their pet topic or favorite player(s). Having your favorite topic is fine, but it is not fine to derail discussion about anything else to talk about your favorite topic in every thread. Doing so is inconsiderate to everyone else who wants to talk about the subject of a thread, and is considered thread-hjacking, a violation of site-rules.
If you want to talk about a certain topic, find a thread where it is on-topic or start a new thread.
The history board is for the enjoyment of everyone who wants to talk about the history of the game, and posters who continue to hijack threads will get infractions for thread-hijacking and/or banned from the threads they are trying to drive off-topic.
Edit: If you have any questions about this, please PM me or one of the other moderators of the History Board.
