We actually had a good team that year. Turgeon, Recchi, a young Bure and Koivu, Damphousse, Rucinsky when he was good, and a slew of other useful players were part of our lineup. Our coach at the time was Mario Tremblay, a hotheaded geyser if there ever was one...he was better tactically than Therrien though. We also finished with 90 pts, pretty good considering that there were no OTLs or shootout wins.
