BTW most teams that win a Cup have a bottom pairing Dman which is next to worthless. Your top 4 plays the most icetime and has the biggest imoact.
I don't think there's one formula for a cup. But I don't think that top four is good enough to win without a decent third pairing to play some real minutes. When you're rolling Pronger -Carle, Timonen - Coburn, and they're killing it as your top 4, then you might be able to get away with a crap third pairing (but not a retarded goalie).

Yandle is an upgrade over Mez, surely. But I don't think he's enough of an upgrade to justify doing what it would take to get him. Healthy Mezsaros can be a pretty damn good defensemen, if you can keep him that way.
