Okay in a fantasy match up who would win this series? Both teams had dominant players and Hall of Famers for the Isles (Bossy, Trottier, Gilles, Potvin and Smith). And the Pens HOFers (Lemieux, Murphy, Mullen and soon to be Jagr, Francis). The Isles were clearly the better dynasty winning four straight and having their best season in '82 with 118 points. The Pens won two straight cups and had their best year in '93 with 119 points. To me the Pens dont get the respect they deserve of all time rankings. But it would be neat to see an in his prime Lemieux go up against Bossy. In net Smith would likely out duel Barrasso but I think the Pens would throw a lot more puck their way. Mario would be the key I think. But throw in Tochet, Stevens, Mullen, Jagr, Francis and you have a very deep offense. NYI wasnt as bad either with Bossy, Trotts, Gilles, Tonelli, Sutter, Bourne and Goring. And on D Ptovin was a much better defensman than Murphy and more of an offensive threat too. I think it would come down to 7 games and you'd think the Isles would come out on top but if Mario is being mario then the Pens would have to take the nod. If I'm a betting man, I'd take the Isles by a whisker though.
