The Bruins didn't have a single 70-point player on their team last season (62pts was their highest).
and they are the first team in how many years to win the cup w/o a single player over 70 pts?

Blackhawks, Pens, Wings, Ducks, Canes, Lightning all don't need explanations, we know who the players are.

The 02-03 Devils were the last time that's happened...And they had a defense of Scott Stevens, and Niedermayer together to go with a VERY balanced forward roster, a system that was suffocating, and a goalie who will be in the HOF the minute he retires....it was also done pre-lockout and we know the game has changed tremendously since then.
