i think this is about matchups.

TB > WASH
(TB trap the caps entering their zone, washington aren't a good dump & chase team, that you need to be to get at tampa's D - Mark Crawford stated this well last night on the nhl network)

TB = NYR
- we can compete with tampa because we can play that dump, chase and recycle way and we successfully frustrate their top players with our D.


WASH>NYR
we just cannot match them for skill when they play their speed game. We have similar issues this year playing a super fast Montreal team.

i think it comes down to matchups
Pretty good post, but I disagree with the bolded part. Tampa owned us all year, and their offense is at least comparable to WAS so I don't think we would fair too well against TB.
