Chance that after injury and missed time he will be as effective and can play full healthy season is around 50%.

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.
Cole was good player before his many injuries. Brind'Amour is not bad C either. Latest success points wise is completely work of Staal. Is it more clear now?

My point is more about leveling playing field. There will be less spread in points in the East and margin for mistakes will be smaller. How in this environment some people can predict any team other than maybe Was to make PO is beyond ridiculous.

It depends on who you think main contributors on your team are. Then you measure impact of relative increase or decrease. Who you think will significantly increase his goals total from young forwards?
