Come on...Roy won two Cups in Mtl when he basically revolutionized the way the position was played, and those teams were still really good. In Colorado, those teams were elite. That was hardly all Roy, and goal tending does not win you anything in-and-of-itself. You still need to score; you need good forwards and defenseman. Do yourself a favour and look at the rosters of the teams that have won a Cup the past 20 years. You'll notice how stacked they were at virtually all positions. The exception (that proves the rule) that sticks out is Carolina, but we had that Cup if not for Rollie going down--he was on fire; an average goalie gone red hot.
