How funny, I was about to address what you said to me in that long text about who the old guard was, and you already answered it here. The "old guard" as I call it was never those Dead Hokages, it was the current Jonin of the village. Of course nobody is going to top the godly Hokages. I was saying this war would have been a great place for the Konoha 11 to take charge and become elites like Kakashi and Guy. Jonin who are respected enough to lead large squads and even get a vote in the next Hokage, because right now they still aren't at that point. Even Shikamaru was basically his fathers right hand. There's nothing wrong with that, I was just saying this war could have elevated them. Some of them did get a good showing in the war, others are still ignored and I would have enjoyed seeing them help Naruto and Sasuke more in the battle with the Juubi and Obito, with their own set of skills rather then Naruto Kyuubi cloaking them. But it's pointless saying this now.
