Exactly. Dallas was a contender before they added Hull. The Leafs were a bottom feeder who became a contender thanks to CUJO

Yes, too bad Lindros wasn't allowed to play where he wanted once his time in Philadelphia was long overdue. Owners don't care about what a player wants, and as he should is only concerned about himself (owner).

That's why free agency rights are important to players.

Do you think any player - or fan - gives a **** about All-Star votes compared to competing for the Cup?
So Cujo was near the top or winner of 7 different major trophies while Hull and Francis got zero votes for any hardware (while others on their own team did) and the best either of them could manage was a single All Star vote and you want to argue who was better?

The entire hockey world disagrees with you. The players themselves disagree with you. I'm glad you think they were better. No one else does (or did) but keep living the dream.
