Yes, I know your favorite Stanley Cup Winning Team is the 1994 Rangers. Ignoring all Ranger Cup winning teams, what are your favorite Stanley Cup winning teams, and why?
1996-7 Detroit Red Wings - Stever Yzerman, Sergei Federov, Nicklas Lidstrom, Igor Larionov, Brendan Shanahan. So much offensive skill on the ice, controlling the puck, fun to watch. Darren McCarty, Joey Kocur, some serious thumpers if the game got nasty.
1988-9 Calgary Flames - Hakan Loob, Doug Gilmour, Al MacInnis, Theo Fleury, Gary Roberts. Because the franchise has had so many disappointing and forgettable years, glad they got a cup
2000-1 Colorado Avalanche, because Ray Bourque won the Stanley Cup
Oddly, two of these three had Mike Vernon as goalie.
1998-1999 would have been great if Buffalo Sabres and Hasek could have taken out the Stars
