Lindros doesn't want to play in Québec? Too bad, but with Sakic, Sundin, Bykov the Nordiques are comfortable enough to trade away Lindros in a blockbuster move to acquire defense/goaltending.

Another effect (not as speculative): Before the Red Wings' Russian Five there could have been the Nordiques' Russian Five: Kamensky - Bykov - Khomutov, Gusarov - Tatarinov.
