Ex Oilers: Lowe, Beukeboom, Graves, Tikkanen, Messier, MacTavish, Anderson, Hudson (8)

Ex Hawks: Matteau, Larmer, Gilbert, Noonan, Olczyk, Hudson (6)

Ex Canuck: Lidster
Ex Wing: Kocur

Wells & Hartman both played for the Sabres at one point before 94'
Kypreos was a Whaler before 94'
Healy was an ex Islander/King before 94'

The Oilers were key ot the team. We are talking about 2/3 of the first line (and at times the whole first line when it was Graves-Messier-Anderson), half of the top-4 defensemen, Tikkanen was a key player on either the second line (as a center) or the third line (as a LW), and MacTavish was key on the third line.

Meanwhile, the Hawks were Hudson, who never played after MacTavish was acquired (got injured a while before that); Olczyk, who should have been required to buy tickets to the playoffs since all he did was watch; Gilbert, who was a fourth liner. Only Larmer, Noonan and Matteau were useful players.
