While I think the 86 Oilers were the better team, the Bruins were 'upset' against a much better team and still went 7. IMO the Bruins would have crushed the Flames. But on the other hand, I think the 86 Oilers would have beaten the 71 Habs. I also think the 71 Habs beat the 86 Flames in 5 or 6. I can't think of one area where the 86 Flames have an edge on them except coaching.

The Habs and Flames largely rose to the occasion because they were facing a rival and caught that rival when they were most over-confident.

Oilers in 6 or 7 over the Bruins because IMO Fhur>Cheevers and Moog>Johnson. That is the one area where the Oilers have a big edge.
