Unbalanced roster can get you wins in regular season, but depth is the key in playoffs.
Carolina won the cup without even playing their fourth line. I think they played like 3 minutes a game and didn't score a single goal all playoffs. Depth in the top 9 is important but I don't buy the importance of a fourth line.
