Look at the Rangers and Blues this season. Last season both had awesome regular seasons, and went deep in the playoffs because they had hard working teams driven hard by taskmaster coaches that played as a unit, blocked shots, and had distributed scoring throughout the lineup.
This season, both are struggling compared to expectations because that work level can't be maintained indefinitely. Eventually it wears on the players, and you do need skill to win.
(then again, looking at the Predators, maybe I'm all wrong.)
Let's not forget that the Blues have had major issues in goal tending and the Rangers traded a couple of key players in that system.
