Keep an ey on Wendal Clarke...

he goes around whacking Nemchinov and Kovalev at every pass. Roughing them up. Slashing, etc. No calls. It was pretty ugly.

i remember this game.

its nice to see the Nords, I wish they would put a team back in Quebec, Winnipeg & Hartford for that matter.

Could you imagine if they stayed in Quebec, all the cups they would have won. Damn Shame.

Interesting...

"1994/95: After taking a step backward the Nordiques trade budding star Mat Sundin to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Wendel Clark and Sylvain Lefebrve in a move to add veteran experience and toughness to the young team. In addition the Nords would name Marc Crawford as the teams new Coach. However, weather it would work or not was put on hold as the NHL endured a 4-month lockout. When the season started the Nordiques were clearly one of the strongest teams as the finished with a 30-13-5 record that was the best record in the Eastern Conference. Helping to lead the way is Peter Forsberg who captures the Calder Trophy in a successful rookie season that saw him score 50 points in 47 games. However, as the playoffs began the very future of the Nordiques was in doubt as owner Marcel Aubut announced he needed a bail out from the Provincial Government to keep the team operating in Quebec for the following season. With rumors of a move floating over their heads the Nordiques would stumble in the playoffs losing in 6 games to the New York Rangers. The troubles were too much for Aubut to overcome, as the bail out was not approved and he was forced to sell the team to investors in Denver, who moved the team to Colorado. Once in Colorado the team would change its name to Avalanche and would go on to win the Stanley Cup in their first season in the Rocky Mountains. Gone but not forgotten fans in Quebec celebrated almost as if they were still the Nordiques."

Shouldve seen him as a Rookie on Vancouver(his first few years I should say). IMO, his peak was in his early 20's.

does anybody think if Quebec never traded Mats Sundin, they would have won even more cups in Colorado?

Perhaps converted Forsberg or Sundin as a winger?

The crowd is so energetic unlike the deadbeats that show up for every game today at the Garden. I know this is a playoff game but no offense to anyone.

Forsberg-Sakic-Sundin would be a decent 1-2-3 punch. All three where in their prime at the same time too.

Not enough ice time..

and puck to go around and have those three be centermen. Sounds scary, but someone's efforts would be cannibalized.

You realize 7 years of April-less hockey can pacify even the most raucous of fans.

I guarantee you, however, NO BUILDING in hockey rocks like MSG come playoff time. Even Chicago Stadium.

In a word, no. You forget Roy was traded next year when they moved to Colorado. There is no way that Montreal trades him to Quebec. Therefore, no Roy, no Cups.
