    In the 87 Canada Cup, Lemieux completely ignored a wide open Larry Murphy who had a wide open net, and instead chose to shoot a 3 inch puck through a 4 inch opening. What happens if he misses?

    Gretzky had the puck, saw Murphy was open, and then passed the puck to Mario for a reason.

    blame Wayne. ;)

    first of all, mario is christ, so no, he would not miss...second, i dunno, he probably would have scored like 15 seconds later or something only this time, instead of putting a 3 inch puck through a 4 inch opening, he would have likely ripped a hole through the netting on the USSR goalie's glove (i forget who was in net that game), simply because he was so pissed he hadnt capitalized initially

    If he missed, it would have been a fair outcome of the play.

    Sorry I'm in the wrong thread. Can someone direct me to the What if Henderson hadn't scored and What if Bossy hadn't scored threads?

    Mario Lemieux doesn't miss; he simply chooses not to score.

    What if Michael J. Fox never went back in time and hooked his parents up?

    I think his wife would find this offensive. I mean, that rebound wouldn't even have been hot.

    I didn't realize that Hasek played for the Czech team back in 1987, got a couple of wins and finished with the second best save percentage.

    Totally was off my radar when I saw that tourney back then. Don't recall hearing about him before the Blackhawk days.

    Bingo.

    The greatest passer in the game to the greatest shooter in the game. How else could it have played out? ;)
