[QUOTE=RangerBoy;44028679]This team reminds me a lot of the 1991-92 team. 50-25-5. If it wasn't for that stupid strike,they would've won the Cup that year. That was a tough team. They took off in January and February. Dog days of the NHL season.

This team is better in goal. Better on D. They don't have Brian Leetch. Better depth overall. Jay Wells(Randy Moller trade),Joe Cirella,Mark Hardy and Par Djoos behind Leetch,James Patrick and Jeff Beukeboom. Mark Messier won the Hart that year. Adam Graves,Tony Amonte,Mike Gartner,Sergei Nemchinov,Darren Turcotte,Kris King,Paul Broten,Tie Domi,Randy Gilhen,John Ogrodnick,Tim Kerr and Doug Weight. That team had more offensive firepower. This team is bigger up front. It was a different game.

That team didn't make many trades

Corey Millen for Gilhen

Absolutely they would have won the Cup that year. If you recall, they were on an incredible roll in March and then there was a work stoppage, which stopped their momentum cold. They still would have won the Cup - they were beating Pittsburgh 2-1 in Pittsburgh, after having won 2 of the first three, when Richter let in a 65 foot flip from the blueline. Pittsburgh went on to win the game, series and Cup.

Rangers also would have won a few cups in the 80's except for the Potvins.
