which Dynasty was better? Oilers/Islanders

these are the best two Dynasty's to ever play in the NHL??

The Rangers were often a big obstacle for the Isles dating back to 1979. No opposing fans knew the Isles teams better than Rangers fans......Oilers were led by the great one, and coffey and messier & crew while the Islanders were led by Trottier, Bossy, Potvin, and battlin Billy.

Lets compare both Dynasty's

Which one was better??

The Islanders were great, but I gotta give it to the Oilers. They could just hit you with so much: Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, Anderson, Coffey, etc.

The Islanders had a great team, but history has told and will continue to tell that the hockey dynasty were the Oilers.

The Oilers without question. 4 in 5 years and another after they traded Gretzky. If they did not trade Gretzky, they probably would have won another 3 or 4 Cups.

The isles were a bit fortunate

they were after the Canadiens and before the Oilers. Edmonton was differently better than the Isles. I don't know which was better the Habs or the Oilers, the 2 best teams ever. You have to stop and remember that Montreal lost what 9 games all year that 1 year, regular season & playoffs!

looks like a lot of jealousy. No way the Oilers were by far!
give us a break.....the Isles went to 6 straight semi's, 5 straight cups, won 4 in a row. Guys, wake up! This team had to face tthe Rangers, philly, Buff, B's, etc ...while the oilers played in the weakest division by far and usually could breeze bt Kings, Jets, calgary,etc........By Far?? cut it out.

Trottier was awesome, so was Bossy. No team was ever better than those Isles by far.....if better at all........

Yeah that's why everyone has said the Islanders were great teams......

The Islanders were heads and tails above those teams at the time and played in a time post Habs and Pre-Oilers. You also act like Calgary was a push over all those years.

In fact the only thing to stop the Oilers dynasty wasn't even aging, it was money. You're essentially talking about an Oilers team that was split up just as it was entering it's prime years of 27 years old.

Trottier and Bossy were awesome, but there's no way that overcomes the two higher scoring players ever whileb they were close to their primes along with Kurri and Anderson, the second highest scoring defenseman of all time, Kevin Lowe, Grant Fuhr in his prime and Oilers team that could outgun anyone with the possible exception of the habs.

I think the real debate is between the Habs and the Oilers. That one is a toss up.

hey you can have your opinions but don't say the Oilers were better by far. Its very close actually. And No the Habs were not better. No way they compete w/ the Islanders.
