This team is too unimpressive offensively to be considered one of the best in Rangers history. The PP is one of the worst in the league, it's not even semi-respectable when compared to some of the better Rangers squads.

From the teams that I've seen since I became a fan, the 91-92 and 93-94 teams were more balanced. The 91-92 team were top 5 in goals for and goals against, had the best penalty kill in the league, and had a top 10 PP. The 93-94 team was also top 5 in goals for and goals against, and they had the best power play in the league. I think an argument can be made that even the 96-97 team was better than this current one, although they were a much older squad.

It's not a slight against this year's team. They are truly a sum of their parts, and they have to work a lot harder than the other squads I mentioned above. They may not overwhelm an opposing team with their talent, but they still find a way to win.
