Man it's going to be hard not watching every single game...
95-96 was the last nice team we had. ( but the Keane&Roy trade was a mistake ).
Turgeon was still young 27yo in his prime, Damphousse, both 90&+, Recchi was oing great with 78 points, that was the best offensive year of Rucinsky with 75 pts, Koivu get a nice rookie year with 20-25-45, Kovalenko 58 pts, but its sure that was not worth Roy.
In my opinion the difference between good and great teams in the new NHL is all about who steps up and plays big. With the cap in place we've seen the end of dynasties and a new level of parity. Now the cup is going to go to whichever team has youngsters bringing their game to a new level. Montreal is fortunatly in a good position because we have so many guys who could break out at any time.
