also, the Rangers were a younger team than Edmonton last year. Edmonton had a better offense than Los Angeles & St. Louis, and was right on par with teams like Phoenix, not far off from NJ, etc.

Their D, allowed roughly the same amount of goals as chicago, ottawa, washington, and philly....all playoff teams.

Regarding goaltending, they got .914 and .910 sv%s from their top 2 goalies....

better than Chicago, better than the Penguins, etc, etc, etc.

Their roster problems are overblown. They had a mediocre offense, a mediocre defense and mediocre goaltending. They did not have a mediocre season...they had a putrid season.
