|HOW HE GOT AWAY|
|TRADE: Calgary traded MacInnis and 1997
fourth-round pick (Didier Tremblay) to St. Louis in exchange for Phil Housley,
1996 second-round pick (Steve Begin), and 1997 second-round pick (John Tripp)
on July 4, 1994. The deal became necessary for the Flames because MacInnis was
a restricted free agent, and Calgary would not have been able to match the
offer sheet that the Blues were set to provide him.||
