let me guess, you never saw markov play didnt you?

Consider that Tor and Buf in division got stronger (to what degree is irrelevant at this point), there are also some teams that got better (Pit, NYR, Florida, TB, Was) and rest stayed more or less at the same level, but you would think young teams in NYI and Jets could be a bit better. I conclude that it will be harder to get points in the East This alone can affect standings and will ultimately be decided in favor of teams that can adjust to new realities.

Well, a lot of people here talk about how your team "built" (they have landed on the moon too); and some sort of intangibles that will magically bump team up in standings; and how % of realized chances will go up (again magically). I think it's maybe time to realize that some players on the team might be over their prime and it's reasonable to expect their production to go further down, not back up?
