8th doesn't seem so far off to me. As others have mentioned, the lack of offense generated by our blueline hurts us.

Also, it's hard to tell how much our goals against average is attributed to the defense or goaltending. I think Lundqvist and Biron are a big part of it. Rangers are ranked 12th in the league in shots against per game. Teams such as the Blues and the Canucks are superior to the Rangers in limiting shots against.
