You've got it backwards, they won cups because they were HOF caliber players. It doesn't mean that every player who's HOF calibre will win a cup, but players with that kind of talent often win a cup sooner or later.

And those cup winning teams had guys on it who were going into the HOF with or without winning a cup. Yzerman, Niedermayer, Forsberg, Jagr... those are all HOF resumes no matter how many cups they win.
