If they were that important you would see an actual correlation between having a Neil, Prust, and a Hendricks and achieving playoff success. That correlation doesn't exist.
Brian Bickell. Andrew Shaw. Shawn Thornton. Gregory Campbell. Kyle Clifford. Dwight King.

Hell the Pens had Rupp, Asham, Cooke when they won.

Successful teams have a good balance which includes guys who can stand up for their teammates and turn the momentum in multiple ways.
