Florida is actually not very good. Their non-shootout goal-differential is -15 (-19 if you cut out empty-netters) -- compare to Montreal's -11/-5. Their 5-on-5 goal ratio is in the bottom 5 of the league. And they do this playing the weakest division in hockey.

And Tallon invested tons of money in UFAs to get them there. The comment I made during the off-season is that he'd spent a crapton of money building the 10th-best team in the East. And probably would have been there in the standings save that the Caps, the Habs, and the Bolts were better clubs that spectacularly imploded for various reasons.

Their underlying numbers are okay, but it's not a great team.
