I would go with the Bruins on this one. The teams in the early 70s were better because back then there were only 12 teams in the league and 6 of them were terrible expansion teams. This meant that it was harder to make the NHL's Original Six teams as there were only six teams so the bottom players on those teams would be better than the bottom players of a team in the 80s since there were 21 teams in the league at that time (so it was not as hard to make the NHL). It is for that reason that I am picking the Bruins as it would have been easier to score on the lesser players on the 86 Oilers than the lesser players on the 71 Bruins.
