Editor Note: This is a re-post of something I put together about 4 years ago. In a couple days I'll have a post up about how quickly the Canucks disintegrated after their Stanley Cup run of 1994. First things first. Check out these beauty moves by Pat Quinn back in the day.
Here are some pieces that the Canucks put together to create their 1994 SuperTeam:
September 1987- New Jersey traded Greg Adams and Kirk McLean to Vancouver for Patrick Sundstrom and Canucks' 4th round pick Matt Ruchty. (Matt who??)
Montreal traded Gerald Diduck to Vancouver for draft pick Vladimir Vujtek in January 1991.
In March 1991, St. Louis traded Geoff Courtnall, Cliff Ronning, Sergio Momesso, Robert Dirk, and futures to Vancouver for Dan Quinn and Garth Butcher. Thanks Blues!
June 1991- Minnesota traded Dave Babych to Vancouver for Tom Kurvers.
March 1993- Hartford traded Murray Craven and a pick to Vancouver for Robert Kron. Vancouver then completed the deal in May by sending Jim Sandlak to Hartford.
January 1994- Vancouver signed Martin Gelinas off of waivers from Quebec.
February 1994- Vancouver signed Brian Glynn off waivers from Ottawa.
March 1994- Vancouver traded Craig Janney to St. Louis for Bret Hedican, Jeff Brown, and Nathan Lafayette.
Wow...then combine these guys with the likes of Linden and Bure and head into the 1994 playoffs to whoop some serious ass! Canuck fans should toast Pat Freaking Quinn for this once in a while!!!
