The game of "what if" has trails. What if Quebec hadn't relocated to Colorado. A Patrick Roy trade from Montreal to Quebec would likely have never happened based on the rivalry and geography, perhaps the non-relocated Nordiques don't win a Cup with another goalie and historical analysis replaces maelstrom with something more tepid.
It is an obvious guessing game how Forsberg on the Flyers would have altered history but the Flyers-Montreal blockbuster (LeClair/Desjardins) trade probably isn't made. Even coaches and front office decisions would have varied from what transpired over time. But the absence of the Cup is what tantalizes the thought process.
