What's everyone's pick for the all-time toughest team by season? Can be amateur, minor-pro, or NHL. I'm sure some obvious choices would be one of the Flyers '70's, or Isles Cup-winning squads. What do you cementheads out there think?

Last years Chicago Blackhawks team was a good one especially considering todays EuroNHL style of play. Players with Chicago last season, Probert, Simpson, Brown, Janssens, Zmolek, Manson, Allison, Vandenbussche, Murray, Russell, Royer, Jones, Bonvie, Nasreddine.
From 86-88 the Detroit Red Wings had Probert, Kocur, McRae, Snepsts, Norwood, Martinson and Gallant. Very tough Detroit teams, Probert and Kocur alone make it one of the toughest teams ever and the supporting cast just made them that much better.

I don't know what could beat that 93-94 Cape Breton Oilers lineup, and my personal favorite is the late-70s Bruins gang, but we have to also include the Islanders with Nystrom, Howatt and Gillies, with guys like Dave Langevin and Gord Lane as fill-ins, and don't forget Billy Smith, he'd put his two cents in. And the Oilers teams with Semenko, McLelland, McSorley, Don Jackson and Co. wasn't too shabby either. Mid-70s Flyers anyone?
