When vs Why

I love Larionov dearly, but Makarov was a better player. And, again, we shouldn't blame Makarov for not being traded to Detroit in 95. He would have played at least as long as Fetisov, ending up with two Cups.
Perhaps the question should be asked why the Red Wings did not acquire Makarov when he was available in 1995.
