I agree. Watching the 1991 Juniors on TSN recently reminded me what a huge deal the big E was. Really he was amazing. All those years dominating the smaller kids didn't prepare him for the perils of Scott Stevens in the NHL.
If someone like Sakic was his teammate who knows if that might have knocked some sense into him. He was always going full throttle instead of using his head like Sakic did. Also would have got him out of the hard hitting Atlantic.
