They had a different coach for each Cup, so it's hard to just credit coaching Devila of 1999-00 and 2000-01 were certainly not lacking in firepower though, even lacking that one superstar up front.

Speaking of coaching: interesting that Detroit and Dallas had stability behind the bench, while Colorado and especially NJ did not
True.

But the 3 coaches were Jacques Lamaire, Larry Robinson & Pat Burns. Think there might be some similarity there?

Also, Lamoriello was at the helm throughout.

To me they were the best defensive team I've ever seen.
