How different would the NHL be today if in the 1993 Stanley Cup finals instead of LA VS. Montreal and in 1994 it was New York Rangers vs. Vancouver Canucks it was: 1993 Montreal vs. Vancouver Eastern Canada vs. Western Canada & in 1994 it was the dream NHL match up of New York Rangers vs. L.A Kings Gretzky vs. Messier. The interest in both series would have been like almost never before especially the 2 biggest American markets and 2 of the biggest stars of all time facing off head to head. Would hockey be a more popular sport in the USA? What would the TV ratings have been? Im sure the Kings vs. Rangers would set the record which would almost certainly never be broken. Also the 93 series of having 2 Canadian teams would have peaked interest in Canada as well and had the story line of Bure vs. Roy. I think both Montreal and Rangers would of still won the Stanley Cup. Thoughts??
