I haven't seen anyone argue that either of the two Avs teams that won were untalented. So I'm not sure what you're upset about there. Roy was excellent in both playoff runs though and was one of the biggest reasons they won and was well-deserving of the Conn Smythe in 2001.

And you mentioned the great goal support he got on the Habs teams. Well, here are the lowest scoring Cup winning teams during the era when the NHL averaged over 6 goals per game ('71-'96). The number is goals per game during their playoff runs. Clearly, both his Montreal teams had poor goal support for a Stanley Cup Champion.

1. '86 Canadiens - 2.80
2. '75 Flyers - 3.12
3. '74 Flyers - 3.18
4. '93 Canadiens - 3.30
5. '95 Devils - 3.35

And mentioning the strength of Montreal's opponents in '93 doesn't prove anything about the talent level of that team.
