4 of the last 7 haven't followed your formula for winning. 50% of the Cup winners since the salary cap has been instituted don't have 2 superstars.
Yeah, if anything going back the past 25 years, it looks like having a deep defense becomes more important. Gone are the days when you could have your top guys logging 30 minutes each and leave scrap minutes for the bottom pair.

Of course, there is no real formula as to how you win a cup. One year, it's all about the goalie. The year after, the goalie has more or less tried to give the cup away but has been bailed out by the rest of the team.
