2001 Devils were probably their best team ever...

The 89 Habs I think was Roy's best team.

The 93 Penguins won 17 straight games but lost to an undermanned Isles squad.

I'd have to go with the 86 Oilers, my own Flyers in 87 who had terrible luck with injuries and still took the mighty oilers to 7 games, 71 Boston Bruins...........and how did Chicago not manage to win far far more cups in the 60's and early 70's with that lineup???

Also, what about the Islanders in 79........I believe they had the best record and were picked by many to win it all ..........and seriously, surely Ottawa should have won at least one cup in the last 5 years???

And of course the Penguins in 93......best team easily and they took the Isles lightly........of course losing Stevens didn't help...

My pick as well.

The goals for differential between the Bruins and the next best team (the Habs) was over 100 goals (399 to 291). Take a look at the scoring race for that year:

1 Phil Esposito, Boston............152
2 Bobby Orr, Boston................139
3 Johnny Bucyk, Boston.............116
4 Ken Hodge, Boston................105
5 Bobby Hull, Chicago.............. 96
6 Norm Ullman, Toronto............. 85
7 Wayne Cashman, Boston............ 79
8 John McKenzie, Boston............ 77
9 Fred Stanfield, Boston........... 76
9 Dave Keon, Toronto............... 76
9 Jean Beliveau, Mtl. Canadiens.... 76

Scary. I watched the series with amazement as this rookie goalie stoned Esposito and Orr time and again.

You neglected to mention that they were backstopped by David Aebischer.
