I haven't seen a deeper roster ever. It was really impressive. Many players from that roster (even from bottom lines) are having bigger roles playing for other teams at present. Can any team ever be comparable in roster depth with them? And they still have an excellent roster despite all these squad losses!

1979 Habs or 1982 Islanders or 1987 Oilers.

It was a pretty damn good team that's for sure. They rolled 4 lines that were hard to play against.

No. Of recent cup winners? Yes but not near as deep as the 80's Oilers or Islanders or 70's Habs.

Post lockout, probably the deepest non-vet roster, by that I mean we didn't go out and sign 6 future hall of famers, it was a bit of a perfect storm though. We allowed our first pairing to develop on a ****ty team for a few years. Sharp, Ladd, Versteeg, Hjalmarsson and Byfuglien probably all turned out better than anyone anticipated back in the day, especially Buff on D, holy ****. Campell was a no-brainer, as was Hossa. Add a couple high draft picks that didn't bust like Toews/Kane and that seals the deal.

It was really a team of players who were all in roles that didn't require them to reach their actual potential. To me, that's depth, depth isn't having the most physical third liner compared to the other third liner, it's having a pool better players commit to lesser roles.

And, yeah, it's a bit silly to compare that team to teams when the league didn't exactly enforce parity.

i'd say 80's oilers have had a collection of gems in two top lines but the whole roster wasn't deep. Probably anyone could play in bottom lines - with their two top lines that wasn't important. Too big difference between top and bottom lines.

Agreed, as awesome as the 80's Oilers teams were, they really don't hold a candle depth-wise to the 70's Habs teams. Those teams had 1st line players (on other teams) on the 3rd line, it's insane. A lot of it had to do with the drafting of players back in the day as Montreal had 'regional rights' to players born in Quebec which was most of the good forwards in the league back in those days.

The distribution of Cups between O6 teams suddenly makes sense.

Montreal, Toronto and Detroit (within 50 miles of Ontario) all had rights to Canadian players. Boston/MA has always put out good players and to lesser extents Chicago and NYC.

Even post lockout, I'd say the Sens in 2005-06 were a better team on paper (with Hasek), but in terms of SC winners, yeah, Chicago was stacked.

Does anyone remember their playoff lineup? I believe it was:

Byfuglien - Toews - Kane
Brouwer - Sharp - Hossa
Ladd - Bolland - Versteeg
Eager - Madden - Kopecky
Burish

Keith - Seabrook
Campbell - Hjalmarsson
Sopel - Hendry
Boynton

Niemi
Huet


Anyways, not the deepest or best lineup ever, but arguably the deepest/best post-lockout lineup. The 06/07 Ducks were pretty insane too, though:

Forwards: Selanne, McDonald, Kunitz, Getzlaf, Perry, Penner, Pahlsson, Moen, Marchant, R Niedermayer, S Thornton, etc.
Dmen: Pronger, Niedermayer, Beauchemin, O'Donnell, and some scrubs
Goalies: Giguere and Bryzgalov

Depth, fellas.

That 09/10 Hawk team rolled four lines and absolutely dominated. Very similar to this years team.

Their top four on D were also stacked.

I still have flashbacks of this game. We were absolutely dominated. We had no business being in this game yet somehow we took them to OT, entirely because of Hank. If possession were tracked like in soccer or football, it probably wouldve been 90/10 Chicago.

Best team post lockout AINEC, and one of the deepest teams of all time.


Haters are gonna hate. I dont blame them one bit, either.

Except the players Montreal picked were terrible.

Currently there 6 top six forwards (Toews, Kane, Ladd, Versteeg, Sharp, Hossa), 3 top nine players (Brouwer, Bolland, Kopecky), 3 fourth liners (Madden*, Eager, Burish), 3 top two dmen (Keith, Seabrook, Campbell), 2 top four dmen (Hjalmarsson, Byfuglien), a starting goalie, and the 3 depth guys. Damn who put this team together
