why does everyone expect carolina to be so much worse??

maybe i'm missing something but they only lost sean hill...they upgraded their goaltending with the trade for gerber, staal is a year older, justin williams will be healthy and in the lineup, and laviolette will be coach from day 1 of camp which is a positive...

i don't think they are a good team, but i don't see them being that much worse then last year...definitely not enough to fall behind the caps or rangers who were worse last year and have gotten even worse. and while i think the pens will be greatly improved, i don't know that they will make up the 20 points lead that carolina had last year

or is it simply that you think other teams have improved more and will jump past carolina?
