Pierre Lacroix would have made him an offer he can't refuse.
And Houle approached Chicago for a trade(that included Belfour) and they refused.
Finally with Roy joining the team, Quebec would have had their new arena.
Wasn't it already determined summer 1995 the Nordiques were leaving. I can't see the Habs giving the Nords their missing piece.
Imagine a similar thing happening now with Carey Price. Can you honestly picture the Habs sending him to Toronto helping fill the leafs biggest hole.
