I did...so much was made of Eric when he was in the Juniors, and I followed the Toronto vs. Quebec stats the entire second half of that season, hoping we'd get a crack at him. Alas, it was not meant to be.
But we made out pretty well regardless, could argue we don't win some cups without Nieds.
We likely don't win any of those cups without Niedermayer. Just like we wouldn't have won them without Stevens or Brodeur. Those 3 were the foundation for everything. We were very lucky to have such a prolonged run with 3 HOF'ers in our lineup each night.
