Question:

Which team do we have?

I'm going with B.
You're neglecting to mention a big personnel difference though. Under "Team A," the players are generally veteran cast offs with a developed game and a hunger to make it to the big league after a decade of riding the buses in the AHL.

"Team B," is teams like NY and Montreal, where it's a bunch of one dimensional players thrown together, having shared former offensive 'glory' (to ane xtent) in the past.

Different players, different results. As much as I respect Lemaire, I'd say it has more to do with the players than the coaches. Even Lemaire couldn't turn around this team (IMO).
