I definitely think the Hawks were the deepest team post lockout - 3 two-way lines, a 4th line centered by John Madden, Brian Campbell on the second pairing, etc. They were so deep, it was impossible to keep together with the salary cap. Their only weakness was in goal.

Wings were deep, but not as deep. Better goaltending though (Osgood sure came a long way from the 1990s). I don't think the Ducks were all that deep for a Cup winner - they basically rode 3 defensemen as hard as they could through the playoffs with Sean O'Donnell filling in the gaps, and barely used their 4th line.
