Comparison between 1993 and 2010 team

Ah...'93 was a great spring...

The '93 team was a true TEAM not unlike the TEAM we have today in 2010, minus Sergei Kostsitsyn, if you know what I mean...and it had a great goaltender...but I'm afraid that's where the similarities end.

1. The '93 team was a well balanced and mobile team of finesse AND power with a good depth all around.

2. Power was provided by #11 Captain Kirk scoring 'heroic goals at heroic times' by bull dozing his way through, not around, but through, opposing d-men and stuffing it in by the goalie... and the emergence of #17 John LeClair as a power forward.

This year's team is missing this critical element...the ability to almost WILL a goal in at critical time through sheer brute strengh...Gionta is great but physically too small and weak to do this...now only if Andrei K. would use that tank of a body like Muller used to...sigh...

3. Finesse came from #25 Vinny Damphousse and #23 Brian Bellows who incidently played with cracked ribs...I mean if the softest guy on the team does this, that says ALOT. The current team doesn't have such higher end players...maybe Plek or Cammy or Gomez but all 3 are close in talent but not quite esp. since they lack the size, reach and creativity...but Benny P. really can be and has to step up and be the vincent Damphousse and more THIS year if CH wants the cup...they all have to score more too and continue their great work.

4. '93 had #21 Carbo to block shots...the whole team is doing that so good but he , #12 Mike Keane and #47 Stephan 'The Shadow' LeBeau shut down super stars like Joe Sakic, Pat LaFontain and Wayne Gretzky...a tall order for Miracle Max Lappierre, Tom Pyatt and Moore.

5. #?? (anyone remember) DiPietro, Paul, not Rick and #45 Gilbert Dionne provided youthful exuberance, spark and timely goal scoring...maybe Gionta and Gomez as well as Metro, Moen, Miracle Max, Pyatt and Moore all have to score more.

6. '93 also had a young but very dynamic D corp that was mobile, dependable and hard to play against...a young #27 Mathieu Scheider provided the physical edge and sand paper with his partner #24 Lyle Odelein. Playing similar in style to a young Chelios, Scheider went even further and also provided the booming shot from the point on PP and carried the play up ice and controlled the tempo of the game...which is WAY too much to ask of MAB aside from the shot. Markov and Subban will have to step up to make like Scheider and #28 Eric Desjardins combined and also score more goals...more offence has to come from defence to be successful. Desjardins scored alot of VERY important goals that spring.

7. Hammerlik and/or Spacek/Subban has to be at least as good as #43 Patrice Brisbois who was good on 2nd PP and mistake free. Jorges, Spacek, O'B and Gilzilla need to keep doing what they've been doing which have been better than what #48 Jean Jacques Daignault and #?? Kevin Haller were doing...even if the latter 2 are slower, they've more than made up for it with their physical play and shot blocking.

8. CH had that masked man, St. Patrick who had already almost single handedly won a Cup in '86 and was already a legend by then. He wasn't a saint yet but he became one the following year when he beat Boston in a crucial playoff game hours after his appendix surgery. Halak, in his first real Stanley Cup playoffs, has to remain stellar throughout the next 12 more wins to have any chance.

As you can see it's gonna take a minor to mid-sized miracle for CH to win the Lord Stanley's Mug this year...so start praying for that miracle now.

It's 2010, not 1993

No comparison is needed, since no other team is like themselves in 93, and this year we have to play the pens, where we were extremely lucking to miss them in 93.

Captain Kirk? Not in 93

I wish those comparisons would stop. It's nothing like 93, and it's nothing like 86 either (except a first time goalie in the playoffs playing great).

Weird that this is the first time someone has brought up 93 in forever. Wonder why no one decided to compare these two teams until now.

Captain Kirk was Muller's nickame from New Jersey where he was the captain...do I have to spell it out and tell you that Carbo wore the C in Montreal?

I think it's because of this song that was posted about 10 minutes ago on the forum, pretty catchy tune where the chorus goes something like "I believe it's meant to be, feels a little like 93".

Music, the influence of all

Meh, whatever you want. Still no comparison necessary. Nothing that happened in 93 can prepare us for Crosby, a 6 year old celebrating the Habs Stanley Cup victory.

How's your reading comprehension? Schneider's style of play was like a young Chelios'.

So basically the point of this thread is what? To remind us that we're not good enough?

I agree with the above poster who wrote.. It's 2010, not 1993.

Wait and see the results before comparing why this and why that..

Didn't read your post past Captain Kirk, but not because of the nickname I obviously didn't know came from before he was a hab, but comparison to 93 is just stupid.

I lack reading comprehension, might not want to agree with me.

If you read the post that's exactly what I'm saying...the two teams are very dissimilar so it is unrealistic to expect repeat of 93.

You do know that there is more to hockey than numbers, right ?

But seriously, he didn't play in all games, wasn't that much of a factor. I was 8 at the time, so I don't remember anything in detail like when I watch hockey today.

...to not to over estimate this year's CH and go around planning a parade like irrational Leaf fans...just enjoy the ride and rejoice if by some really, really outside chance CH does win a cup.


...also, it was a good chance for a walk down memory lane...

Meh. I think you'd have a hard time finding anyone who TRULY believe we'll go all the way. I think most are just superphsyched about the upset.

Sadly, as I found out, there are lot of kids who have never seen CH win a cup before who think differently than you.

Well they had more than 100 points in 1993, without the OT loss point system too

Yeah, I remember that CH went on a 10 game win streak in March that year and met the powerhouse defending champs Pittsburg, who were on a similar streak for their 11th game...and beat them...

That's when I knew that the '93 team had a shot at the cup.

Atleast that's how I remember it...

Was Petrov on that '93 team? For some reason I thought he came later...I do remember Doan-ard Dufresne but he was more of a 'le goon' than a 'wall'...or was that Sean Hill?

Also, I forgot about lttle Denis Savard and Ramage...
