I think what the Hawks showed was the importance of having strong depth in your lineup. Yes they still have the star players, but the star players can only play 2/3 of the game. That's a lot of time to be on your heels if you're sub par in the bottom six.

The last couple years it's looked like the Hawks have run out of steam by the time they hit the playoffs. They were able to get over the hump a couple years ago but now it's a lot harder.

I'd still take their situation...won a Cup and kept the star players. You never know what happens when you get in.
