Ya, but those guys were nowhere near as good as they are now when they were with us so it is deceiving to say as much.
nah i think they just needed time... Hainsey always had the talent to do it, he just needed the time... let's say they were both in our situation today instead of when they left... with our coaching staff and youth movement they would have made it
back then, we just didn't make the right personel choices. this is one area where Gainey has done a much better job then A. Savard
possibly, though it was hard to say if their development cycle would have been the same as a different environment means a different development, anywho, its all speculation. The one i would prob like to have today is Beauchemin so he could complete our top 4 with Hamrlik.
