Nashville had a pretty damn good grasp on how to play and beat the Hawks in the playoffs. The Hawks were very fortunate just to make it out of the first round that year let alone win the cup.

Also if you want a prime example of what happens to a team when they repeatedly go "all in" for a cup look at SJ. No cup, an aging core, and almost no prospect talent.

There is no perfect formula for winning a cup. If Lou comes to the Hawks and the Hawks only manage to score 2 goals a game (like they did in the playoffs last year) the Hawks wont win. If the Hawks top forwards no show in the playoffs (like last year) the Hawks won't win no matter who is in goal. If the Hawks play defense like they did last year they won't win a cup no matter who is in goal.
