No very bad team will ever win the cup with an all-star.
The carried the team narative is relative of winning championship team.
Hasek also had playoff success only with good team, but relative to stanley cup finalist the sabres were not great (same thing for the 93 Habs good team, but not great), and they did not face Boston or the Pens in the way neither it is true.
When you see the list of cup winning team, the 93 Habs team with no Roy in goal is at the very bottom imo, with the Lighting.
