Also Oates was dishing it to Brett Hull and Cam Neely while Thornton turned Cheechoo into a 56 goal scorer.
Spezza couldn't even make Cheechoo score close to 30 or 40, that Thornton gave him 50 is nothing short of a hockey miracle, though I'm sure attenuating circumstances will be brought up (power plays among them).
