I'm not suggesting that it was all Roy in 1986, but I do believe he deserves the credit he gets for that Cup win. He had some amazing games in those series. 1993 was sooooo much a team win. Roy's 1993 legend has grown in the past 5-10 years for some reason. Roy didn't win games by himself. He was steady in every game, which was very important, but in no means was he the spotlight he was in 1986.
You're right, even though 86 was a more impressive team on paper, that one was 'his' cup. He was the story. In 93, the team and how things played out was the story, but the rookie goalie was what it was all about in 86.
