 I was thinking about that the other day.  Imagine McDavid/Draisaitl playing in the high flying 80s.


 But you have to consider that they would not be the super-athletes they are right now if they were in that era. Also, The 80's guys would be who they were but at incredibly higher levels of fitness and training. Hard to imaging Lemieux or Gretzky if they had the advantages of today's technologies and training methods. 


Yep, that's absolutely the X factor. But McDavid and Draisaitl jump in the TARDIS and get dropped, as is, into a "pizza during intermission" game would be fascinating to see.


for sure, drop those two guys, as is,  into an 80's game, it would be hilarious. same with Crosby and Malkin, matthews and Marner.

In case anyone is wondering, purple cauliflower just doesn't taste the same as white cauliflower in a crudite platter.


 Noted!  Next you have to report on orange cauliflower.


 Cauliflower has a taste? I always though it tasted like cheese sauce. Lots and lots of cheese sauce.

Crudite platter: a plate of useless food to munch on while waiting for meat. :p

 hmmm, that's not how I read it.  

I mean it's just a fun exercise anyway, because who knows if Gretzky or Lemieux would be able to play at the same kind of level in today's more disciplined, tighter-checking game?  They might just be another Joe Player.


I suppose if we give technology a few years, some combination of AI and machine learning will be able to deliver accurate simulations of this very question. Equally cool and scary to think about.
