The 1993 team was the closest by far of winning. From what I remember the 1999 team wasnt even close to beating Hasek and peca. The 2002 team was much too injury depleted and couldnt score against Irbe ( **** you alfie for that hit from behind). Everyone talks about the 1993 team because we had the team to go all the way. The infamous no call in game 6 in LA comes to mind. I still feel chills remembering the hat trick by clark to tie it up.
I'm sure a lot of people here remember a movie called "The Passion Returns" about the 92-93 Leafs. It always brings back great memories for me and i'd recommend it to any diehard Leaf fan!
It's interesting for me to think about the comparisons to the team that Burkie has built. Maybe Fletcher still has something to do with that
afterall, he did land Grabovski (Gilmour) to kick things off
I do like Lupul over Andreychuk, as Lupul has other scoring areas besides 5 feet away from the net, and a lot more dangerous with and without the puck. Other than that, i haven't seen anything top the 92-93-94 performances by Gilmour.
What difference does it make where you score from? If it was that easy everyone would do it. Andreychuk scored 50 twice in a row while with the Leafs. Lupul 's impact on the linup does remind me of Anderchuk though.
