One thing it was missing though was an offensive superstar. We didn't have a 100 point/50 goal guy (something that wasn't all that uncommon back then.) Richer could've been the guy (scored 50 in '88 and '90)but his psychological issues compromised what could've been a HOF career. He didn't have a HOF career but certainly had HOF talent.
If we had an offensive star then we'd have won more cups for sure. We scored by committee and while our offense was decent, it certainly wasn't feared. We were missing the top talent up front to put us over the top for a lot of those years. Still, we managed to win cups in '86 (where Lemieux played like a superstar) and '93.
I still lament the career of Richer and what could've been. When he was on he was ON. He could take over a game... and man was he fun to watch. What a shot that guy had...
