Course I think the 70's was one of the worst era's of hockey (talent wise). Even the amazing teams like the Bruins, Flyers, and Canadians got to beat up on so many crappy expansion teams.
I hate to admit it, but those 80's islanders teams were better. Not even going to mention the Oilers.
The days of the dynasty seem so far away.The Islanders run, spilling right over the next year to the Oilers comprised an era of probably the most domination by two clubs that will ever occur. I doubt we ever see anything like that again.
Personally, I always felt great rivalry and animosity towards the Canadiens, as a Rangers fan.
