Maybe they sign Ed Belfour in '97 over my Stars ( unlikely ) and then the Stars don't win their Cup ? Who knows. But they still would have needed to go after a quality goaltender.

Actually reminds me of the fact Roy wasn't too far away from free agency eligibility back in 95. Chances are if he's dealt to a team other than the Av's, he would eventually sign in Colorado with his old buddy Pierre Lacroix.
