I'd probably still lean towards the Oilers in 7.
Would be one hell of an offensive series, with each team's major superstars at the peak of their offensive powers. It's still shocking to me all these years laters that niether of them took home the cup those years. I think these two teams are the greatest teams to never win the cup. That being said, which was more of an upset, the 1971 Bruins who seemed destined to win back to back or the 1986 Oilers who seemed destined to win a third consecutive cup and earn dynasty status?
