Anytime you're icing Brandon Bollig when facing elimination, your depth isn't as good as it could be. Kris Versteeg has fallen so far out of favor that coach Joel Quenneville made him a healthy scratch for Game 6 and dressed a seventh defenseman.
By definition, a team that feels more comfortable with 11 forwards isn't as deep as the team that goes with 12.
They have Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, three forwards who bring more to the table than the best Rangers forward, whoever you feel that may be. What the Blackhawks lack in depth, they have in top-end talent.
Much like the Rangers, the Kings roll four lines and have a balanced attack. What sets the Kings apart in this area is their size—they have one player shorter than 6'0" (Mike Richards, 5'11") and one player who weighs less than 190 pounds (Justin Williams, 189).
The Kings' four centers are Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and Jarret Stoll. That's as formidable as it gets.
Despite the all-world talent of Kane, Toews and Hossa, the Rangers are much better off matching lines with the Blackhawks. The Rangers' Carl Hagelin, Mats Zuccarello and Martin St. Louis are all smaller than the tiniest Kings forward. Size doesn't always matter, but the Kings would very likely wear down the Rangers over the course of the series.
