Anaheim is more on par with New Jersey in 2010-2011 than the standard lottery team. They were expected to do better, and it surprised many when they didn't. There is also an expectation that they will bounce back, because of various circumstances(Hiller's healthy again, a coaching change, some of their top players had unusually poor seasons, etc...).
