They could/should/might have been in the final four just as easily as New York. I'm a Habs fan with nothing for or against Washington, but they really impressed me.
Scoring an average of 2 goals per game is anything but impressive. I consider that a pretty glaring weakness for a hockey team. You aren't going to go very far in the playoffs if your offense is that terrible.

And this team barely made the playoffs this year and has a very good shot at missing them next year, so no I definitely do not think they are better off than they were 2 years ago. Just last year they won the Eastern Conference. I don't see them doing that again anytime soon.
