In '88 Stephane Richer was superb in the playoffs and was killing the Bruins in the first game or two. Michael Thelvin (however you spell it) slashed him and broke his thumb. That was it for our offense.

In '90-'92 Roy really sucked in the playoffs. I remember (I think it was Cam Neely) shooting from center ice and having it go in. Harry Sinden started making little jabs here and there when a player wasn't playing well that he was playing like "Roy does in the playoffs."

Roy of course turned it around in '93 and then joined the Avs for more cups.

One big hole for us was Richer... He would be great one year and then suck the next. Came out years later that he struggled with clinical depression and I don't think it was ever treated properly. He was really moody and it's a shame because he was the best forward (in terms of talent) since Lafleur. He had size and the best shot in the league. For some reason he just stopped using it... At least he won a cup or two with NJ after being traded.
