Everyone has young players likely to improve and old players likely to decline. I think this balances out for all three clubs being examined.

I probably understimated their upgrades, and fell into the trap of judging them by their contracts a bit, but I don't think they are going to make as much difference as it's fashionable to say it will. I look at the final rosters of the club and I don't see that Buffalo is better than Montreal, or Boston.
