The 1995-96 Red Wings.

In names, they were less stacked than the 2001-02 Wings. But in player ability they were better. They had three of the six best defensemen in the league based on Norris voting, plus a top-two goalie, two elite two-way centers, 3-4-5 forwards (Primeau-Kozlov-Larionov) that compared well to most teams' 1-2-3. Add in crazy forward depth (Draper, Ciccarelli, Johnson, Errey, McCarty, Brown, Taylor, Lapointe, Maltby, Grimson) plus top-four caliber defensemen playing in the bottom half (Fetisov, Bergevin, Ramsey, Rouse), and finally a backup goaltender who was a top-15 goalie in the league.

Stacked. Absolutely, completely stacked.
