Idk, I'd be surprised if the Olsen's break 100pts again or ever lead the league in scoring going forward. I see them as PPG players at best. I think Iggy can break 80 and if Tangs and Cammy can stay healthy they should both be over the 70pt mark.
Kelser has had major injury problems the last 2 years and he's the main threat on their 2nd. I don't see Raymond or Burrows as clear upgrades over Filppula or Hudler either. Booth is as brittle as they come. Our bottom 6 would clearly be better than theirs if that deal went thru.
I give an edge to them defensively, and goaltending I'd call equal. I don't think the gap is as far off as many critics would think.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I'd rate the teams at least on paper as pretty close to equal.
