Speed isn't everything and it's not like they didn't play against that just ask Mike Gartner. Howe also would have put most current athletes to shame with his physique. I don't understand why people think that the athletes today are in a different plane of existence compared to those of the past. The seventies and eighties were the hey day of weigh training and nobody could say Orr wasn't built like a truck because he was. Same goes with Shore. And of course Howe who was once tested and was higher than anyone except the world's best boxer at the time. These guys would do just fine in any era. If Jagr can still compete at 44 imagine what he was like in his prime playing along side Lemieux. It was magical to watch and they would still be dominate in this day and age. The only other team I cheered fro back then was the Lemieux led Pittsburgh Penguins. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
