76-77 was the best team ever iced. Period.

The game of hockey is as simple as keep the puck out of your net and pour it into theirs.

The 55-56 Canadiens had 222 goals for and 131 against. Goal differential is +91.
A strong, solid team with great leadership and a galaxy of all-time greats.

The 76-77 Canadiens scored 387 goals and allowed a paltry 171. Goal differential is +216!!
That is a devastating team. Two strong scoring lines, the best defensive line in hockey, the Big Three on defense and Dryden in his prime in net. They were undefeated in the pre-season and lost only twice in the playoffs. So in 106 games that season this team lost only 10 games! Regardless of individual stars or stats the 76-77 edition was the best TEAM the sport has ever seen.
