Hextall is my all time fave... when I went to the dinner where he was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame 2 years ago he made a speech. I believe he thanked Keenan and Clarke but no other NHL coaches or GMs were mentioned. I thought that was interesting. Guess Keenan brought out the best in him and 86-87 was such an incredible year.
