The '94 forward core was better too.

What we have going for us right now in Henrik to put us above. MDZ is the one guy in that matchup who looks favorably compared the our previous cup winning squad.

The good news is that we didn't get a whole ton of production from the role players last time around. Nemchinov, Tikkanen, Noonan, Anderson, MacTavish, Gilbert combined for only 15 goals in the playoffs, and that is 2 full lines worth of production. Our point production those playoffs was mostly out of 5 forwards and 2 defensemen. And Larmer's was mostly in the first 2 rounds.

Bottom line, having Sauer back makes our D better, but still not world shattering. I wouldn't view it as top 5 in the league... yet. If we are to win the cup, there is no doubt in my mind it will be Henrik that takes home the MVP.
