Is the fact they have too much high end talent one of them? No.
But I also think that probably every Stanley Cup championship team in living memory has had a pretty balanced roster.
"Balance" is a load of crap. The best teams are the ones with the best players. That's it.
I'm pretty positive our roster is not a SC winning one
Right now? Probably not. Imagine how much further away we'd be without any high end talent. Oh wait: you don't have to imagine it. That's been the reality for this franchise for most of the last 20-odd years. And now that we have an embarrassment of riches, people want to chuck some of it overboard to fit some abstract notion of what a team should look like? It's embarrassing.
