As I've said elsewhere, who cares how much they score so long as its more than the other guy. Of the teams you mentioned, only Buffalo and NYR had a better 5 on 5 ratio. The Habs had much better special teams though.

Leafs, Islanders, Hurricanes and Thrashers lose because they are defensively inept, not because they lack scoring. The game isn't who scores the most is the best. The game is who scores more than the guys they are facing.
