Schremp is a great example of how you shouldn't draft someone with great hands who isn't a great skater these days.

Would Brett Hull even succeed in today's NHL? I dunno.

Hull was lazy even by old NHL standards where Ludwig and the like would drink all summer long and not start working out until training camp

Hull would still be amazing on the PP, but he’d not have the space he did 5 on 5 when younger. Every team now plays defense.

And skates really really well. I'm amazed at the difference in twenty years. Half of every team has Mike Modano skating now.

But maybe a young Hull today wouldn't use a six pack of Bud as his post game recovery drink.

That's one hard thing to compare across eras. It wasn't all that long ago dudes were showing up to training camp having done next to no exercise all summer.
