But then you consider that Glenn Anderson was useless while Gartner was great.
You consider that Weight and Amonte were far superior to Tikkanen, Matteau and Noonan.
In trading Gartner, Weight and Amonte for Tikkanen, Matteau, Noonan and Anderson, they dealt 3 first liners for 4 third liners. Amonte struggled that year, but he was almost a point per game producer the previous season. And Weight was almost a ppg player in 93-94 too.
I think a team that has Nicholls, Weight, Amonte and Gartner is superior to a team that has Messier, Matteau, Noonan and Anderson.
Also not particularly excited about trading Patrick+Turcotte for Larmer.
Can't help but feel like you're playing this weird game of hindsight fantasy hockey here. There's absolutely no way to deduce that we would've won in '94 and "multiple" times after from any of this.
