    i ranked the players in order of who i'd prefer on my team, and the number in parenthesis is where they were originally drafted.

    how would the NHL have been affected if the 1988 entry draft turned out as follows...?

    1. Minnesota ......... Mike Modano (#1) 1101gp 458g 648a 1106pts 710pim 1.005ppg
    2. Vancouver ......... Rob Blake (#70) 903gp 186g 400a 586pts 1235pim 0.649ppg

    4. Pittsburgh ........ Mark Recchi (#67) 1173gp 456g 745a 1201pts 780pim 1.024ppg

    18. Boston ....... Stephane Fiset (#24) 390gp 164-153-44 3.07gaa 16so .899save%
    19. Edmonton ....... Tie Domi (#27) 943gp 99g 130a 229pts 3406pim 0.243ppg
    20. Montreal ....... Marty McInnis (#163) 796gp 170g 250a 420pts 330pim 0.528ppg
    21. Calgary ...... Steve Heinze (#60) 694gp 178g 158a 336pts 379pim 0.484ppg

    Would Quebec have won a Cup, or two, prior to relocating to Denver, with Roenick and Selanne on the team ? Would they still have relocated ?

    Would Vancouver have won the Cup in '94 with Blake on their team ?

    Would Toronto have won the Cup in '93 with Mogilny on their team ?

    I don't remember if Blake was that good in 94... But I think they would have.. The series was very close and the 7th game was a close one too... definitely, Blake would probably have helped.

    But Mogilny in 93? I don't think so. Sure he was a great scorer, but the chemistry between him and Lafontaine was huge. Mogilny has never been as good as he was with Lafontaine.

    Even if Mogilny would have been a 60 goal-scorer, there was something magical surrounding the habs in these playoffs. They really would have won it anyway.

    Its tough to say. Trevor Linden was the captain and brought so much to the team, I don't know if Blake could have meant the same thing to that playoff run as Trev
