I highly doubt they could have won with the worst starting goalie in the Finals of all time, though.

Edit: 1984, I believe.
What were the stats line? Was Gretzky shut down like Richards and Carter were? Did Messier lead the team?

The Sedins were held to 2 points each. Kovalchuk and Parise to 1 point each. Marchand had 0 points and Horton had one I think. Richards and Carter had two points each. If Messier and Gretzky had two points each, my guess is they wouldn't have won.
