If the traffic all has to traverse a single link at
any point, you won't gain anything by distributing
it elsewhere.  Your problem must have been the half
duplex or worse, a mismatch between switches.

The duplex setting is negotiated separately between each pair
of connected ports.  I don't see how the overall topology
would affect that, other than a bad connection affecting
fewer end points.
