Saying those teams (86 especially) wouldn't have won without Roy is true, but the same can be said about the Bruins and Tim Thomas two years ago. That doesn't mean the rest of the team wasn't great.
I think the rest of the team was 'good' not 'great.' The Oilers were great. The Flyers were great. We weren't great but we had Roy and he's the difference maker.
