I think there are differneces. Mainly, we have a guy in net who looks like a surefire, permanent fixture for another decade. We didn't have that a decade ago. We had 3 months of a very hot Felix Potvin and a lot of retreads besides that.

We are also much younger and elite and most importantly healthy this time around. Give me Quick, Kopitar, Richards, Johnson and Doughty over Allison, Deadmarsh, Palffy, Blake and Potvin any time (Though I'd love a healthy Palffy/Deader on this squad).

This team is likely to get better since all of our piece, other than quick, are locked in long-term. And all are still entering/not yet at their primes. This year isn't going well, but the future bodes well.
