No, not at all. Wisniewski was not good 'overall, not even considering points.' He's a very flawed player defensively. Coincidentally, Markov's very good defensively. They're not in the same stratosphere talent-wise or defensively. This '50/50' nonsense is bizarre. What's that based on, anyway?

This is just crazy talk. At one point you mention Cole 6-10 years ago (huh?), when I presume you're talking about him on the BBC line (i.e., not with Staal), then in the next second, you say he's reliant on Staal. Which is it? Because Cole was indeed highly effective playing alongside Battaglia and Brind'Amour (hint: no Staal on that line). Say, does Montreal have anyone as effective offensively as Battaglia and Brind'Amour? Absolutely. Does this negate your point? Sure thing.

Really, it's irrelevant? So, if we say Montreal got better, and Tor/Buf got better, then the extent that the latter two got better is irrelevant? That's some interesting rationale.

Sure. And some players are maybe entering their prime, and it's expected that their production will go up. That's rudimentary. However, I presume from your level of logic that Montreal players will hold exclusive rights on 'declining production' while the rest of the conference will enjoy increased production.
