Only a few teams can actually win a Cup every year, so of course talent and drive and those things come into it. Now after that it comes down to which team is usually the luckiest. The Hawks where lucky they had maybe the fewest injuries in the play-offs. Other then the Game 3 in Boston a core player didn't miss any more then that. They got lucky in some of the goals they scored and some of the goals that didn't get scored. Dugavins anyone? Luck plays a large part in winning a Stanley Cup, or breaks, bounces, etc. It's a lot more then just the guys played hard.
Every team gets lucky +/- the same amount throughout the course of a playoffs or season. Chicago wasn't anymore luckier than Boston, or Pittsburgh, or Detroit. They were the better team, which is why they won.
And again, were we just unlucky against PHX?
