THe 94 team was built around stars. It was truly a Mess/ Leetch/ Richter show. They had an decent but aging supportive cast.
The team had a great year overall which helped them in the playoffs.
They polished off a poor Islander team quickly. Had little problem with Washington. NJ was the better team in the playoffs but were too young to handle the pressure. Once the Rangers scored their first goal in the second period of game 6 NJ played as if they were afraid to lose. They stopped playing and were in awe of the Rangers.
Perhaps, the biggest break was playing Vancouver for the cup. A number of better teams fell in upsets and Vancouver emerged. The Rangers were looking for the line and barely held on.
No matter they won and that's all that counts.
The 94 team had a great offense. Phenom PP.
Today's team is built solely around the defense playing 2-1 games.
