Until henrik sedin this year the east pretty consistently has the art Ross winners and runner ups. Forsberg in the early 2000s is the only one that comes to mind. For the longest time the southeast was absolute crap, and for the most part it still is. Always one good team and the rest are terrible. With the ridiculous schedule in place the east has feasted on that **** show of a division for a while now.

In today's game there is definitely more of a focus on defense out west.

As for the thread topic, nyr fans might be biased, but I also thnk a lot of you probably don't see much hockey other than the home team. Some ppl in here are definitely overrating kopitar. Lots of talent but major consistency issues. Defenseman also traditionally take longer to develop.
After further review I stand corrected.
