I'll never forget what they did to Dallas in Game 1 of the Finals. I don't know that they scored as many as that for the rest of the series, but what a statement. Two years of the best combination of offensive and defensive and physical strength in a team in a long time. I mean, what were New Jersey's weaknesses? The untapped potential of Scott Niedermayer and Martin Brodeur?
