Good question. I think I have to admit the 1999-2000 New Jersey Devils were one of the most-balanced teams I've ever seen. An elite top line (Elias-Arnott-Sykora), solid second line scoring from Mogilny and Gomez, an elite shutdown center in Bobby Holik, elite PK forwards in John Madden and Jay Pandolfo, a defense that sported Niedermayer, Souray, Rafalski, Stevens, and Daneyko, and of course, Martin Brodeur. Hell, even their 4th line guys like Sergei Brylin were no slouches. Just no real weaknesses on that squad. On paper that team the following season should've wiped the floor with every other team in the league, including the Avalanche. For obvious reasons, I'm glad they didn't.
