5. What if Gretzky went to the Vancouver Canucks instead of the Kings, like he almost did?
http://sports.nationalpost.com/2011/...that-got-away/
4. What if we don't trade away Cam Neely to the Bruins for Barry Pederson?
3. What if we win the coin toss in 1970 and get Gilbert Perreault instead of the #2 pick, Dale Talon at the entry draft?
2. What if Dan Hamhuis doesn't injure himself putting a hip check on Lucic in the 2011 finals VS Boston?
1. What if Nathan Layfayette puts it in the net and doesn't hit the post in the third period of game 7 of the 1994 finals?

Detroit's history goes far back so I'll just go from the late 80s:

1) What if Gretzky was traded to Detroit rather than LA?

2) What if Detroit stuck to its guns and drafted Pavel Bure after the league told them he would be ineligible?

3) What if Yzerman was traded to Ottawa for Yashin?

4) What if Fedorov never leaves?

5A) What if that ridiculous penalty on Datsyuk isn't called in game 5 of the 2007 WCF against Anaheim?

5B) What if Datsyuk, Lidstrom, and Hossa are healthy in the 09 Finals?


Edit: I completely forgot these ones and they can't go unmentioned:

What if Konstantinov and Fischer's careers aren't cut short?

Knew this would come up in the thread. My first thought was related.

Hard to come up with 5 right now but for LA I think #1 has to be: What if McSorley's stick was legal?

NastiMarvasti 03-14-2013 05:54 AM

What if McSorley's stick was legal.

What if they didn't trade the pick that turned into Ray Bourque.

What if Peter Forsberg lost his spleen one game earlier.

Others can help me out.

Edit: Fan of Every Anton beat me.

You're missing one big one from Oilers' history.

Huh. Never realized how close NJ came to Lemieux. The more you know

Honour Over Glory 03-14-2013 08:11 AM

1. What if Kevin Stevens didn't run into Pilon's visor?
2. What if the Pens traded Naslund for something of actual value?
3. What if the Pens didn't have an idiot for an owner and had to sell off star players and trade Jagr? (No Crosby, Malkin, Fleury, or Staal).
4. What if Hossa re-signed? (Likely no cup in 2009, key players would have had to leave because of his contract)
5. What if another team tanked better than the Penguins in 1984?

RealisticLeaf55 03-14-2013 08:11 AM

3) What if Richter made the save on Francis in 92?

4) What if they just re-signed Messier instead of the play for Sakic?

5) What if Dolan didn't order Neil Smith to go out West and not come back until he signed Fleury, Kamensky and the rest in the summer of 99.

JaymzB 03-14-2013 08:35 AM

1. What if the Habs traded Maurice Richard to the Rangers?
2. What if the draft rules didnít change, and the Habs got Gretzky in 81?
3. What if Roy wasnít kept in the nets for 9 goals?
4. What if they drafted Dionne instead of Lafleur?
5. What if they didnít trade Kennedy to Toronto (this is a big oneÖit lead to Frank Selke eventually working for the Habs, and building a dynasty).

Ridiculous call??? Pavel CLEARLY and purposely slowed down in front of Mac not allowing him to jump into the rush. Its called interference.

Eh, I think you're missing a couple:

What if Hasek didn't go to the Olympics in 2006?
What if Friesen hadn't scored in 2003?

skinniks 03-14-2013 09:06 AM

1. Draft Savard over Wickenheiser
2. Did not trade Roy (or pulled Roy after 4)
3. Bowman was given the GM job after Pollock
4. Did not trade Chelios for a spent Savard
5. Dryden never came back after sitting the year out or he was traded due to it
