It can't hurt I wouldn't think. There's a reason why no team has repeated in 10 years, and it's not just because of the parity. It's very draining and the lay off isn't like what it was before. Now players are training pretty much year round, and to have to come off a cup win and get right back into training is hard. No real time to just rest. And that doesn't include the busy season some guys have, especially the stars, with cup appearances, parties, 'days with the cup' etc.

Heck look at Bob in the article posted on here. he had like 5 or 6 parties in just a few days after the cup, and I doubt it's going to come to a full stop this off-season. And he's the TV guy, not Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar or the NHL's most famous party man-couple, Jeff Carter and Mike Richards.
