1988: Flames trade Brett Hull and Steve Bozek to the St. Louis Blues for Rob Ramage and Rick Wamsley. The next three seasons in St. Louis, Hull scores 41, 72 and 86 goals. Terry Crisp's player assessment skills foreshadows Mike Keenan's ability to assess goaltenders.

1989: Red Wings trade a young Adam Oates and Paul Maclean to St. Louis for Bernie Federko and Tony McKegney. The Wings may have found a Cup five years earlier than 1997 without this trade.

1992: Blackhawks trade backup goalie Dominik Hasek to Buffalo for another backup goalie, Stephane Beauregard. Keenan chooses Belfour over Hasek as his #1 due to Eddies' triathlon calibre fitness levels. No one bothered to ask the Chicago players which goalie they couldn't score on in practice. Years later as GM in Florida, Keenan doubles down and swaps Luongo for Bertuzzi.
Huh, for some reason I was under the impression that the Brett Hull trade involved Doug Gilmour.
