Watching the Finals game last night you see two teams who've won cups recently. The top two lines and the top pairing D are roughly the same. The rest of the roster is filled with young players, rentals and good enough players to fit under the cap. That's how you win. Making your top lines and D better than the other teams. Bottom guys are relatively inconsequential.
Nailed it.

Boston has depth but they also have several high-end players. Chicago has depth but they also have several high-end players. Pittsburgh has depth but they also have several high-end players. LA has depth but they also have several high-end players.

It's not the guys who play 8-12mins a night that win games. Ridiculous.
