Is it better to have balanced team and not top heavy talent?

Scoring is not everything, as a crappy defense will end a team's playoff hopes real fast.
They still fielded three lines, and their 4th line of Dupuis, Adams, and Satan held didn't **** things up for them.
Players they traded for, such as Chris Kunitz and Bill Guerin, had high PPG stat, with Kunitz scoring 18 points in 20 games and Guerin 12 point in 17 games.
You cite that no one else were 100 pt players, but there were eight players that scored 30 or more points.
If I recall, their shutdown third line was Kennedy-Stall-Cooke. All three of those "third liners" broke 30 points during the regular season.
And don't forget Max Talbot went crazy that postseason and posted 14 points.
