You're not going to be able to use it in salary negotiations, you won't be able to pawn off a ring, the cup to you should represent great play and overcoming adversity. If your team got gimme wins (not Emery but your South Park example), what adversity did your team overcome and what did they accomplish? This is more of a philosophical question, and obviously is not based on Emery being in over Mason. I'm just illustrating my point with a bit of a philosophical question. It's sort of a reductio ad absurdum argument.
I don't care if we win each game 6-5 or 1-0. I don't care if we play a bunch of AHL-call ups or the big stars. Wins are wins and winning the Cup is special, anyway you look at it.
