Skill + depth = championships. I think it really is that simple of an equation. Having a fighter who can only fight is useless because it does not allow you to roll four lines. Moreover, this type of player is usually sitting in the press box during the playoffs. They are that useless when it comes to crunch time because they cant do anything else on the ice and can easily get penalties due to their lack of skill.
What I have wanted for ages is team toughness. Give me a team with players that can score, win face-offs, block shots, and hit and take a hit. I think we are slowly getting there. This year we have one of the deepest squads we have ever had and have some decent team toughness: Cole, Pacioretty, Moen, White, Eller, Subban, Yemlin, and Gorges come to mind.
