Goaltending is over-rated if you are strong down the middle (and in other areas).

Pittsburgh had Crosby, Malkin, Staal
Philly had Giroux, Briere, Couturier, Schenn

Since the lockout, virtually every cup champ had 1-2 (or 3) punch down the middle that was good, if not great (anaheim maybe being the exception, but McDonald and Getzlaf were pretty good that year). On the flipside, those cup champs didn't always have an elite goalie.
