Anyway, no a bottom pair does not make the difference between cup and no cup, quite likely. However, if we could add a #4 and use Brisebois sparingly, I fail to see how it could hurt.
I feel a solid low pairing could make a huge difference.
When your bottom pair can fill in 17-19min and be adequate, then you know you have a hell of a D corps.
Minnesota is an example, Skoula and M-A Bergeron fill in 19:11 and 17:11 respectively, and that's big for a 5th/6th pairing.

I think Gorges and Hamrlik are great as 3rd/4th, if we can add a 5th/6th D that can put up close to 18-19min and fix our PP problem, then we'd be set.

If we can add a D that can take around 30-45sec off from each of our top 4, then we'd be solid IMO.
Of course if we can add a big D like JayBo, it's always better, but I think those type of D will be expensive at deadline.
