So many guys scored so many BIG goals that run.... it was magical... Damphousse and Muller were forever known as money players after this one....same with desjardins....and the biggest money player of them all Roy... Carbonneau and Benoit Brunet were solid on the checking line and scored some big goals... Savard provided inspiration....schneider was great on the pp with desjardins... bellows played his role well....lebeau was great, i was so sure he would become a star... and even gilbert dionne in his arrogance was a great benefit in winning it all... and who could forget the great john leclair and his unstoppable goals in the finals.
My avatar. We didn't have the most skilled team on the ice at the time. They won that cup with heart and no one has a bigger heart the Muller. With all the face-offs he won and clutch goals he scored (including the winner in game 5) they would have had a tough time winning that cup without him. Carbs, Roy and Dejardins would be 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively.
I always liked Stephan Lebeau. Slick skater, soft hands, put up career best numbers that year. 31 G, 49 A, 80 P. Ran into ankle problems shortly afterward and never came close to those numbers again (heck, he never got through a full NHL season again - went off to Switzerland a couple years later).
Muller was one of my favourites at the time. I still can't believe we had John LeClair and gave him up... Dejardins against LA... too many to list.
It's funny though... after all these years I'll never forget DiPietro & Dionne... they seemed so great when I was 13... lol
BENOIT BRUNET!!! Oh man I swear that guy had some of the best moves in hockey. I remember raving about him to people and nobody ever knew who I was talking about. I wish I had a video of this one time I remember him going coast to coast and scoring a pretty, pretty goal... heh too bad he couldn't do that consistently.
No, seriously, it's Carbonneau. I played goal as a youth, but when I played forward on occasion, I always envisioned myself as a player like Guy. It's still a shame he didn't play every game of his life as a Hab.
