As for the New York "Oilers". I don't buy it. The vast majority of that team were Rangers to begin with. While it's fun to use it as a jab, to actually believe it is ridiculous. Richter and Leetch (Conn Smythe anyone?) were the two most instrumental players that year (with Mess) and both started out at MSG.
The players the Rangers traded for during the 1993-94 season totaled 14 goals during the play-offs. Good, yes, but not incredible. Of course had Ryan Smyth single handedly led the Isles back to the Cup Garth Snow would be the smartest man alive.
