Not overlooking, but none of those teams fit what people probably think of when they say dynasty.

I have no problem extending the definition of dynasty to fit the current reality though. That Colorado team, for example, only won 2 cups, with 4 years between championships. However, they went to at least the 3rd round in 6 of 7 years. That's a hell of a run.

Before the 90's, before free agency, when the traditional dynasty existed, that's one type. The free spending days, it didn't create the same type of dynasty teams, even in big markets, but there were a few exceptional teams.

In the cap era, now it's a combination of more teams, and free agency, and a limit to how much you have to spend, and a limit to how much you can spend. It's a more complex time to try and build a team. You can't just draft a guy and have him for his entire career without paying him. You can't just throw tons of money at anyone and everyone. It's more about managing an entire organization than ever.
