Much like Keon, Sittler's story was messed up by Harold Ballard. Had the old goat not traded Lanny MacDonald in a deliberate attempt to upset Sittler, Darryl would likely have finished his career as a Leaf and become the only thousand point player in team history. Who knows? A Macdonald/Sittler combo might have even led Roger Neilson's squad to a Stanley Cup.
Sittler, McDonald, Salming, Turnbull and Palmateer were a good core and too bad they got torn apart. They certainly would have needed some help from the support guys, but its fun to play the "could have been" game.
