For people that only remember Coffey at the end they missed a devastating offensive player. IMO the 2nd scariest player on those Oilers teams.
Unfortunately I got into hockey fairly late (about 92) and most of what I saw of Coffey was in his time with the Wings. Still I have to say that I have not seen another defenseman carry an offense like he did. I remember games where it seemed every single offensive play that Detroit made originated with Paul.
Oh yeah, we're talking about goalies. I didn't want anyone to forget that Hextall has the modern age record for goals (that the goalie actually put in the net) with 2.
