    They were eliminated from the first round of the NHL playoffs the same year that Wayne Gretzky scored 92 goals and made 120 assists.
    Their 'run and gun style' of play throughout the 80's forced goalie Grant Fuhr to face a higher than average amount of shots.
    Contract disputes between the team and All-Star defenseman Paul Coffey lead to him being traded to the Penguins.
    They traded Wayne Gretzky for a 'package of players and cash' to the Los Angeles Kings (1988).
    They were eliminated that same year by Wayne and the Kings in the first round of the playoffs.
