That being said, did it get boring having the the Canadiens, Islanders and Oilers continually win through out that span?? Are you happier with the league today and the lack of a dynastic team(s)?
Hell no it wasn't boring: The on-ice product was the most exciting the NHL has ever produced. Wide-open fire-wagon hockey instead of a never ending series of 2-1 soccer scores with the Stanley Cup winner is whoever's goaltender gets hot in the post-season.
