The first four Edmonton Cups were dominant teams with huge regular seasons that were punctuated by strong playoff performances. The fifth was a case of a team that wasn't dominant at all, but got hot at the right time and won as the underdogs. I don't see where that reflects badly on Gretzky in any way.
LOL, you called Hrudey a superior goalie. He was better than Fitzpatrick though.

What does it mean? Exactly what is says. Did I say it reflected badly on Gretzky? Sounds more like I was paying a compliment to the other Oilers.
