EDIT: They also would likely not have had both Fuhr and Ranford; instead of trading Moog for a skilled younger goalie they would have traded him for more scoring.
They also traded Coffey for Simpson the year before the Gretzky trade, which doesn't sound like a good deal, but Simpson went on to lead the Oilers in goal scoring and tie Messier for points in the '90 playoffs run. He was big for them the following year, too.
