Dougie had some pretty good linemates in big Dave "garbage goal" Andreychuk and Wendel, who could score with a wrist shot from the top of the circle. Everybody thinks that great Burns team was all Dougie. He was definitely the catalyst but it was a pretty well built team led by a brilliant coach.
Gilmour didn't make Andreychuk, but he made him better and helped him put up career highs.
