Remembering 1992-93: Hockey was never the same

Very fun post at Behind the Net talking about how '80s firewagon hockey (and the crazy stats that came with it) basically carried through to 1992-93, then stopped. I know a lot of Isles fans think Pierre Turgeon was never the same after Dale The Coward mugged him. For his time as an Islander, that may be true -- but getting to watch him later every night for several years like I did in St. Louis, I disagree: Turgeon got "it" back, he just got it back in a league that wasn't scoring as much, on a team that embraced defense-first hockey, at a time when the sport overall became much more focused on suffocating (:cough: obstruction) defense. Still, as a fan part of me died after 1992-93. Still feel in some ways like I'm in purgatory.
