NY has a #1 Center, Pittsburgh has a #1 center, though Pittsburgh's is better.
NY has a #1 Goalie, Pittsburgh has a #1 Goalie, though NY's is better.
NY has a solid top6 forward, top4 defense, solid checking line, as does Pittsburgh. In a best of season, both teams are excellent.

The difference between them is the Rangers don't have an elite #1 defenseman to run the play like Kris Letang and that prevents them from being the most complete team in the East.

Substitute Pittsburgh for Philly and Pronger, Washington and Green, the outcome is the same. We've been behind in this area since 2003.

Don't see how Boston is considered the most complete team in the East when they don't even have a #1 Center. Although Seguin may make me eat my words.
