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.
Krejci-Bergeron is nothing special, comparatively. Thomas on the other hand...
