People assume, for whatever reason, that things are just going to inexplicably change for the worst when the playoffs start. There is no reason that has to happen. This team is well ahead of the rest of the conference and wins are what matter in the end. Your depth can look great on paper, but if you don't win with it, it doesn't mean anything at all. The other side of that coin is that your depth can look like garbage on paper, but if you win consistently, it doesn't mean much. This team knows how to win. They've won against plenty of fantastic teams, some of them repeatedly. Do they theoretically have the best depth in the league? No. Have they had more success than every other team save for one or two? Yes. That's what matters.
No team goes into the playoffs without a few weaknesses. OP has identified a few our NYR's. Thats fine, thats NHL hockey.
