2) Mike Keenan DID coach in the 1987 Stanley Cup Finals, but it was with Philadelphia, not Edmonton.
3) The one year I think Mike Gartner, Mark Messier, and Glenn Anderson all played for the same team (1994 with the Rangers) they didn't play on the team at the same time. In fact, Gartner
was traded for
Anderson by Mike Keenan.
4) I doubt Gartner, Messier, or Anderson played on any checking lines in 1987, and I know Messier and probably Gartner didn't play on any checking lines in 1994.
I think he meant Canada Cup, not Stanley Cup. All of what he says makes sense, and Anderson-Messier-Gartner went head-to-head with the KLM line throughout the final.
I'm not what you'd call a Gartner fan, but he was pretty damn good that series, at both ends of the ice.
