Renberg actually was quite the player for a short time (2,5 seasons at age 22-24) before many injuries transformed him. Had 82 point 38 goal rookie-season without Lindros and LeClair and was on pace for 45-50 goals both 94/95 and 95/96 before his stressed abdominal muscle "finally" tore. Broke his hand, skate to the face, broke his thmub, a propeller tore his arm, and so on... Arguments for both LeClair and Renberg regarding the second best player on the line could be and was being made before his abdominal injury.

For example he never scored this kind of goals after 95:
