If I implied I thought Dionne would score 70 goals per season with the Habs, I apologise - although I do think with a better supporting cast he would have done quite well - even under Bowman's system.

I say this because Dionne came-out the OHA, whereas Lafleur came out of the QMJHL - which for most of its history has been a "run & gun" league. The OHA/OHL has always been a more balanced style of hockey.

Under Bowman, Dionne could have been what he should have been - better regarded.
