Rentals or players acquired at the deadline rarely are key players in a Stanley Cup run, but I think it benefits to all the team, especially to the youngsters, to surround the team with more veterans. And we all know that playoffs are often the veterans game.

Most of the last Stanley Cup winners acquired new players at the deadline :

2012 LA Kings : Jeff Carter
2011 Boston Bruins : Rich Peverley, Chris Kelly, Tomas Kaberle
2010 Chicago Blackhawks : Nick Boynton, Kim Johnsson
2009 Pittsburgh Penguins : Chris Kunitz, Bill Guerin, Philippe Boucher, Craig Adams
2008 Detroit Red Wings : Brad Stuart
2007 Anaheim Ducks : Richard Jackman, Brad May, George Parros
1993 Montreal Canadiens : Gary Leeman, Rob Ramage
