Linden was the true leader and inspiration on that team and lead the Canucks in scoring in 92 followed by Ronning and with good contributions, especially in the playoffs, by Courtnall and Momessio.

Lumme was also a very good addition and captain Kirk found his stride in 92 as well.

Little kids and uniformed people would look to the bright shiny new object Bure, and man he was very electrifying to say the least, but this attempt at a rewrite of his impact on the team is just plain revisionism to say the least.
hey, hockey is a team game, we all know and get that, but the 1992–1994 canucks weren't close to being a great team or anything like that, it was a pretty solid team with some really good heart and soul players, but it was also at the same time a team very much built on a bunch of rejects from st louis who coattailed a great player
