Bench is downplaying how good the 02-03 team is by saying they only beat the Oilers because that team was really ****ing good but happened to come up against the blade saw that was "Jiggy." I would personally rank that team just ahead of the '08 squad because they were really good all season that year and looked poised to do big things in the playoffs. I can give that situation a little grace because they ran into a goalie who was on one the hottest streaks in history, and also because they were really good in the pre-cap era; the good teams from that era would probably lay waste to most of the good teams now.

Anyways, calling someone a liar is a bit much and the reason I bothered to respond. It's hard to lie when the topic is subjective. There's no way that the 05-06 team should be in this discussion.
