i know they didnt make the playoffs in 96, but what about the 96 Devils?
If anything, had the '94 Canucks won the Cup they would have been hands down the worst Cup winner of the '90s. No elite skaters save Bure, Jyrki Lumme as probably their best defenceman. Kirk McLean, though excellent, pales in comparison to most of the goalies that were winning Cups in that decade (Roy, Belfour, Brodeur, Barrasso). There's a reason Vancouver cherishes the memory of that playoff run so much.

1996 Devils have a case for best team to miss the playoffs.
