If you're talking balanced scoring then I'd go with the two goalie-stolen playoffs - the 93 Habs (Roy) and 03 Deviles (Marty)
MTL had 13 players with 10+ goals and nine players with 10+ points in the 20 playoff games.
NJ was also a very balanced team.
But in terms of teams overall, the Isles dynasty (say 81 or 82) were able to win games any way you wanted to play. They had no weakness. Multidimensional to say the least!
They could play very physical, all offense, tight defensively, were dangerous in close games and supremely confident even down a goal in the third on the road.
Tough to win four straight cups and the finals five straight years, the last two playoffs against (arguably) one of the best teams of all time, definitely the best offensive team ever.
