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 made every body better that he played with during his time with the Leafs. But in no way, shape or form, did he completely carry that team. They had a ton of depth.
