No team lives up to peoples idea of what a perfect team with no holes is.
I agree, there's certainly no formula for building a team. If you can make the playoffs, and have skill or a great system or a ridiculous goaltending performance or a whole bunch of other things and a bit of luck, you can win the cup.

Trying to build a team around the most recent cup winning team would be impossible first off, and secondly it would be an ever changing proposition as the only consistent thing about recent cup winners is that they all had a bunch of really good and effective hockey players.
