Then Babcock lost in the finals before winning it and had alot of first round exit.

Demers also took alot of time before winning the cup in fact his track record was about the same has a guy like Martin.

Same thing for a Pat Burns who took alot of time before winning the stanley cuphe even had a finals lost.
Back then, St-Louis was playing against expension teams like them in the playoffs before meeting the finalist of the Original Six teams for the Stanley Cup. They were not necessarely the second-best team of the NHl, just the best of their division/conference. Bowman had the chance to have Jacques Plante and Glen Hall in nets.
