The Espo-Park-Ratty-Vad was earth-shattering in the world of hockey.

People have to remember how strong the Rangers were back then. I never did get used to Vadnais as a Ranger, though I did warm up to Espo.
Park and Ratell becoming Bruins was just too weird.

Try to think of a trade like that happening in the NHL of today. Now, everybody sits around with a magnifying glass going over cap hits, scrutinizing to the last penny. Blockbuster trades like this one couldn't even happen, for good or for bad.
