Recchi gets traded to the Flyers at the deadline. I'm pretty sure that's how it played out (in a nutshell).
I really don't understand where we even got a good look at this one possible example.
97-98, Corson-Koivu-Recchi line . . . Koivu may have battled injuries, but he still played 69 games.
Rucinsky and Savage were Damphousse's linemates.
And in 96-97, Recchi played a healthy chunk next to Koivu, too.
