There is a flaw in your conclusion about having lots of guys who can score goals. You say so in referring to someone like Kane, who is referred to as an elite scorer. The Wild have no such elite scorer. Kane scored 30. The Wild had nobody reach the 30 goal mark. He also had several teammates score 20+ (6 Blackhawks scored 20+).
The Wild had only 4.
The difference an elite scorer can bring, is they open up the ice for other players to do more scoring.
You listed Ovechkin as a bad point in your argument, while completely ignoring the fact that the Caps had more depth in scoring than even the Blackhawks with 7 players with 20+ goals and even 3 players with 30+.
The Wild do NOT have lots of guys who can score goals, and that is precisely their problem.
Of course the Hawks and Caps were better than the Wild. I'm just saying when you look at the Hawks you don't have an elite 40+ goal scorer, you have depth. The Wild do have several 20 goal guys with Koivu, Brunette, Lats, and Havlat, and guys like Miettinen, Cullen, Kobasew and Bouchard could be close behind.
Either way, Richards' team looks like a complete cluster**** out on the ice and nothing short of the '87 Canada Cup roster could win with this disorganization.
