It's not the guys who play 8-12mins a night that win games. Ridiculous.
Bryan Bickell, Andrew Shaw, Dave Bolland, Viktor Stalberg, Marcus Kruger, Michael Frolik, Michal Handzus
Kris Versteeg, Tomas Kopecky, Dustin Byfuglien, Andrew Ladd, Bryan Bickell
That's serious quality in the bottom half of the lineups.
Just because it's better to have top end players doesn't mean you shouldn't bother improving the depth side. One is a lot easier to do than the other and it certainly doesn't clash with either happening.
What these teams thrive in doing is having a consistent supply of cheap quality talent to fill in when the bottom 6 outgrow their role. Right now Bergevin seems to be setting up the foundations in order to have that constant influx.
