Alfredsson hit the post in the dying minutes of Game 7 in 2003 against the Devils in the Conference Finals.

That's hockey folks.

Is this what it has come to... leafs fans so desperate they start threads about what ifs?? Maybe if they knew how to shut down gretzky like montreal did they woulda been in the finals...I guess i will expect to hear more what ifs for another 40 years so i better get used to it.

It really should have been Ottawa in the final that year. Jersey was offside on the winning goal.

The Isles, without Turgeon, changed their game to find a way through Pittsburgh, which led the NHL with 119 points vs. NYI's 87. Had the Isles tried to match offense, no way they win. Throw Turgeon onto that ice, and the weave of the game changes so any number of things could happen and not happen, as in Pilon breaking Kevin Stevens face into nine pieces. If the air doesn't go out of the Pens, the two-time champs probably find a way.

HERE'S ANOTHER WHAT IF YOU COULD NOT HAVE HEARD ABOUT ...
A friend of mine has a stick collection from enforcers only. So, before Game 2 in Montreal, he gets one from Marty McSorley. (You can see where this is going ...) I've advised him on several occasions to measure it. If it's legal, he's in trouble with the LA Kings.

If Al Arbour wouldn't trade the Potvin pick to Sam Pollock after seven laps around St. Catherine Street, then I don't think losing would have caused him to blow it all up. That said, the Isles had the killer instinct that year, and though they were offsides on the Sutter roofer (they were also offsides a few times vs. the Bruins -- not sure what the epidemic was all about), and I think they come through. It was their time.

When the Flyers win the Cup next June, you'll finally get over it.

I think if the Isles didn't win the Cup that year after making the deal for Goring they may have dealt one of the big 3. NOw they wouldn't have delt them for picks/prospects, but looked for a big 1-for-1 type move. That would have been 3 very diappointing playoff appearances in a row.

Not saying it's a given, but I think it's something Torrey would have had to think long and hard about.

He shouldn't have had the illegal stick in the 1st place. It's his own stupid fault.

Not sure if its been brought up but Gretzky drew blood. The reason Toronto fans were pised was because in '93 not only would we have had a 5 minute major to work with (lot better chances than a minor) but drawing blood meant a game misconduct. In other words, no matter what, if Fraser calls the penalty, Gretzky wouldn't have done jack all except cheer his team on from the dressing room.

It would have been a good finals, certainly not the best based on the players involved.

I can't see it eclipsing the great series between the Oilers and Isles, or the Oilers and Flyers for that matter in the modern era alone. For sheer talent on the ice the Dyansty finals between Edmonton & the Isles are untouchable in the modern era. For quality of play I have yet to see a more entertaining Finals than the 87 series between the Flyers and Oilers.

I think the Islanders were so motivated to play the Penguins without Turgeon(considering most experts probably didnt even give the Islanders a game in that series) I dont know if they would have won with Turgeon in the lineup..

And even though Turgeon wasnt 100% he was definetly back for the Canadien Series..

The thing about the Isles that people forget that year is that they were the only team to beat the Penguins three times. So it wasn't that much of a surprise to me. Plus, while there were great performances by some of the Isles, "Radar" just pick the Penguins apart and thoroughly outcoached Bowman.

As for the Turgeon injury, it ended up working out in the Islanders favor, not only because of his style of play not fitting what the Isles were doing againt the Pens, but it gave more time to Penguin Killer Ray Ferarro.

There are a lot of guys on that Leafs team who went on to suck.
