You can't go wrong with a series featuring Gretzky, Messier, Coffey, Kurri, Anderson, Trottier, Bossy, Potvin, Bourne, Tonelli, Gillies and then a HHOF goalie with a pretty darn good one on the other end in Moog. Yes Moog was the starter in the 1983 playoffs, not Fuhr as he broke through the next year.
2002 had a lot of talent but I am afraid the Red Wings were a little too past their prime to compete with the 1983 bunch.
Same. The 1996 Blues were big names but Gretzky, Hull, MacInnis, Anderson were all better earlier. Pronger was good, but would get better. If these guys were in their primes, 1996 could beat 2002 (and the Blues probably beat the Wings in 6 or less.)
