Canadiens "What If?" Complentations

Let's come up with some Habs-related "What if?" scenarios and discuss how things could have changed.

Here are my three big ones:

1. What if Jacques Demers reneged on his pre-season promise to Roy, wilted under the media/fan demands, and started Racicot in Game 3 of the 1993 Nordiques series?

2. What if Montreal drafted Denis Savard in 1980?

3. What if Tremblay pulled Roy early on a fateful night in 1995?

Give me your thoughts on how Habs history could have changed.

Also, feel free to give your own Habs "What If?" scenarios.

What if Montreal hired Scotty Bowman as GM instead of Irving Grundman?

MY brain went into overload by all the possibilities...

My main guess is that Roy would've asked to either be traded in the following months as it was not going well even before that game between him and that distasteful Blueberry, or he would've askeed his head to either the lockeroom or Habs management...

The problem was still Corey....

What if we gave into 99% of HF's demands and drafted Brule ahead of Price?
