i am smart enough to know option 1 is the truth.
but you cannot credit the ducks and the leafs together.
ducks slow build was murray and leafs slow build was Burke.
It's not so cut and dried. In addition to Pronger, Burke added Beuchamin, Travis Moen, Todd Marchant, and J.S. Giguere, all of whom played significant roles in the Ducks' Cup win. Murray laid the ground work, but Burke deserves more credit for bringing in the pieces that put them over the top.
