There was little roster turnover from 1994 to 1995 and from 1992 to 1993.

Very little.

The truth is that Neilson, Campbell, Renney and Tortarella never preached or strategized puck pursuit, confronting the puck, and pressing the puck.

Keenan made a science out of it. The guy took three different teams to the SCF in seven years. Three. All three never recovered after he left. The 1995 Hawks being the lone exception.

I love when people try to marginalize Keenan's impact on the 1994 team.
