Thanks BraveCanadian! Very glad to know that I was able to add something helpful to the discussion.
I still wonder how things might have turned out if Gilbert Perreault hadn't gotten hurt - imho opinion, this was HIS tournament, the one where he finally got to be a leader for Team Canada. And, he deserved a much better fate.
In some ways he reminds me a bit of the Lemieux of his time before Super Mario came onto the scene... not nearly as dominant of course, but capable of some beautiful goals and was something to see in full flight.
