How so?

We've gone exactly as far in the playoffs than the Flyers did the past 2 seasons.

We have the league's best goaltender. We had the league's #1 powerplay. We finished in the upper half of the league in offense. We've got a stacked farm system.

We lost 1 guy - Ryan Suter. A notable loss, but we also have high level defense prospects out the wazoo.

With Weber, I don't see this team as being all that much worse off than last year.

Remember, all it takes is a hot goaltender in the playoffs. I'd put my money on Rinne any day.
