No. Parent missed most of the season and the Flyers record was still almost the same as the year before. The difference was the opposition in the Final. The '76 Canadiens were a much better team than the '74 Bruins or the '75 Sabres who each took the Flyers to six games. Outcoaching Bep Guidolin and Floyd Smith is one thing; doing it to Scotty Bowman is another matter.

And I can't imagine Pelle Lindbergh playing any better in '87 than Hextall did, so I'd vote no to that as well.
