But both have also turned it around lately, right? I thought you meant that their outcomes were in line with internals and not that the outcomes have been unsustainable.

Washington had a historically high SH% just two seasons ago IIRC so if any team is going to operate successfully in the regular season in that fashion this team remains one of the safer bets.

I don't really pour over the numbers too deeply but I would put Washington behind Pittsburgh and Boston in the East when it comes to balance and possession games. Part of it is personnel--particularly a relatively weak second line from a consistency standpoint--but execution and work rate could be quite a bit sharper.
