When 50 Was A Real Number

from the Ottawa Citizen,
It was a lot simpler then. Six teams, one Stanley Cup. If a fan wanted to identify the 50-goal scorers, he could start with the players wearing No. 9 on the back of their wool sweaters: Montreal's Rocket Richard, Chicago's Bobby Hull, Boston's John Bucyk. Fifty goals meant something 50 years ago, didn't it? Now the new NHL, with it's jacked offence, dragging hockey out of the dead puck era, is about to destroy the sanctity of the 50-goal season as happened in the NHL 30 years ago.
