Sorry, but I don't think its really that clear cut. You could easily put some of your examples in the opposite camp
The Blackhawks had/have great depth for both of their Cup teams. It wasn't all about superstar talent. Mike Richards even said the reason the Flyers lost the series was because they only had 3 legit forward lines while the Blackhawks had 4.
Plus, both the Kings and Bruins had superstar players. Chara is arguably the top defensemen in the game. Tim Thomas was a superstar goalie. Bergeron is one of the best 2-way players in the game. For the Kings, Doughty is easily on the level of Keith. Kopitar is a borderline superstar. Quick was the best goalie in the league last season.
