the adams was a very competitive division during that time, with montreal, boston, and quebec all being usually stronger teams than hartford. when quebec went into the tank toward the end of the decade, buffalo started improving.

also, other than francis, those guys were solid but none were stars. turgeon had his injury problems derail his development. samuelsson was a very good #2 defenseman. but dineen and ferraro are productive second line wingers, cote is a really good second pairing d-man. hard for me to look at that nucleus and envision it being the core of a powerhouse.
