Semenko and McSorely weren't any less marginal than Dave the Hammer Schultz who had a bit of a career in the 70's either.

I think what should be mentioned is that the Oilers core was all around 25 and their goaltending was probably better as well.

Probably the Oilers in 6 or 7 but these types of comparisons are so subjective that they almost have no meaning.

In the hypothetical matchup and meeting of these 2 teams who knows if Leach and Walton develop chemistry?

Or any other of 100s of variables that we have no way of measuring?

That and the only real measurable variable that is not to be taken in these comps makes it a fun exercise but not much more.
