Default Team of the 90s

The Montreal Canadiens were the team of the 1960s. In the 70s, it was the New York Islandes. The Edmonton Oilers ruled the 1980s, and now, looking back, I pose the question to you of "who was the team of the 1990s?"

I'd like to expand more on this topic but I'll let you guys do it first -- I'm outta time and hafta leave but I wanted to post this before I forgot!

Well, I have some time now to reflect on this topic -- I just wanted to post it earlier so I wouldn't forget about it!

I voted for the Quebec Nordique/Colorado Avalanche franchise. Since the early 1990s, they were a strong team but could never win the Stanley Cup in Quebec City, Quebec. In 1996 they moved to Denver and won it.... they probably would have won it no matter where they were, but they were a strong team with young players with names like Sakic, Forsberg, Foote... Chris Simon was there in '96, and Uwe Krupp scored the Game Four overtime goal to win the Cup for the Avs.

They were strong in '93, '94, '95, and in '96 when they won the Cup, and then at the end of the decade, they had some fierce battles with the Detroit Red Wings in 1997, 1998, and with the Stars in 1999 for the Western Conference title. And then, they continued their strength into the new millenium, winning the first Stanley Cup of the 21st centruy/3rd millenium, in 2001.

The New Jersey Devils for me received a close 2nd place. Now, I forget if the Nordiques/Avs made it into the playoffs every year, but the Devils faultered after winning the Stanley Cup in 1995, becoming the first team in how-many-years to not make the playoffs the year after winning the Stanley Cup -- they didn't make it to the postseason in 1996.

What about the Red Wings? I may be totally in the dark about this, but it always seemed they were a good team; hence the name "Hockeytown".

Well, we could argue that. The Canadiens made it to the finals 6 times in the 60s, winning the Cup 5 times, while the Leafs made it to the finals 5 times, winning the Cup 4 times.

Also, I also had the same though Marc did as an afterthought.... the Wings won more Cups than either the Islanders or the Nordiques/Avs, and also won the President's trophy as the league's top regular season team more times than anyone else in the 90s!!!...... yet, I didn't put them on my list of the top 2 teams in the 90s 'cuz I hate them

I'm gonna have to vote Detroit. They always seemed to be a really good team and made improvements every year and adjusted. To me its between them and the Avs. But the Red Wings pull it out with their slightly better consistency.

I voted for the Red Wings. They always seem to put a solid team on the ice.

The Avs are a close second, though.

Hey SC-Lee,
If you check your hockey history book, you will find out the Canadiens (70,71,73,76-79,86,93)were the 70's team too and the toss up would be between the Islanders(80-83) and the oilers(84-85,87-88) for the 80's. The Islanders won their cups in a row while the oilers could only win 2 in a row like a few other teams have done. So the team for the 80's would make it the Islanders. I cheered extremely loud when steve smith ended what could have been the oilers run for 5.
