If we're talking about top 6 forwards:

The Penguins were stacked and I remember a (hockey news?) article around that time proclaiming that the Pens may have the best top 6 forwards ever.

Lemieux, Francis, Tocchet, Stevens --- that is 4 100 point scorers that year -- Jagr (94), Mullen (70 in 72GP). Cha-ching. They had everything in there. Extreme skill, grit, and good two-way guys too (Francis and Mullen in particular).

And Turgeon, by far the Isles most talented and highest scoring player, missed all but the last game of the series.. where he did nothing.

That was an epic, epic, upset.
Of course it was an upset, but of which magnitude?

This was another great top 6:

King-Hogue-Thomas
Ferraro-(Turgeon)-Flatley

They also had depth in McInnis, Brian Mullen and Tom Fitzgerald, not to mention the legendary David Volek.

They had defensemen like Malakhov, Norton, Krupp, Kurvers, Kasparaitis and Lachance.

Glenn Healy had his moments and if this team plays at its best it is a really, really good team.
