Would he ever have become less of a distraction had he remained part of the team.... How would his attitude have effected the all the young D like Schneider, Desjardin, Brisebois, Lefebvre, etc that were coming up at the time and grew to become a big part of that 93 team....

We never know what would have happened if the trade didn't go down. Maybe if we kept him we only have 23 Cups instead.... maybe with him we have 26.... who knows?? The answer is out there in some alternate universe i think.
Sports hypocrisy 101 tells us that the ammount of 'behavior' that teams tolerate with players is on a direct ratio with how well they perform. Be a wild child, but you'd better be good.
