Just like Echoes did for College Football, I decided to do one myself for the NHL. Please choose who you believe is the best. The 2000-01 Colorado Avalanche: They probably had one of the most jaw-dropping rosters ever. Joe Sakic=league MVP. He was on their first line with Hejduk and Drury. Just think about having a second line with Forsberg, Tanguay, and Deadmarsh. They got even better after trading Deadmarsh and Aaron Miller to the Kings for Rob Blake and Steven Reinprecht. Blake, Adam Foote, and Ray Bourque anchored an extremely solid blueline. Bourque finally won it all. Blake was one of the most dominant players on the ice. Stefan Yelle was also a key component who helped shut down the opposing forwards. They also had Greg De Vries and Jon Klemm, who were two of the best defensive stalwarts at the time. And Patrick Roy, the greatest goalie of all-time. What more is there to say... 2001-02 Detroit Red Wings: Nicklas Lidstrom wasn't even their captain back then... Steve Yzerman, Brendan Shanahan, Brett Hull, Luc Robitaille all scored 30+ goals. Kirk Maltby and Kris Draper were both in their prime as the league's top checking forwards, while they had a great 4th line with Igor Larionov. Chelios was still contributing at both ends of the ice, and Datsyuk was just starting to crack the NHL. And then you have Dominik Hasek. Honourable Mention: 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks. Brian Burke did a really good job here. He brought back Selanne and got good performances out of Andy McDonald and Chris Kunitz on the 1st line. The kids were leading the way on the 2nd line: Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, and Dustin Penner, a line full of power, grit, youth, and skill. They got the best out of their checking line, as Rob Niedermayer, Travis Moen, and Samuel Pahlsson played key roles in the cup win. I haven't even gotten to their defence yet... "The Big Three" of Scott Niedermayer, Francois Beauchemin, and Chris Pronger. Pronger didn't even play on the 1st pairing most of the time. That really says something. Giguere once again turned in a great postseason performance. After adding Bertuzzi and Schneider the next season they were expected to repeat as champions, but then everything began to unravel.
