It's interesting. The team, as a whole, is fairly the same as last year. I'd say it all depends on how Nash's addition into the lineup effects the chemistry of the team. If they can click early, then being one of the best teams in the East on paper is a great thing. If Nash can't seem to gel with Richards, or Stepan, or Gaborik early, then it will probably take a while to get the team into the groove they need.
What about the potential of lots of back-to-back games? Biron might have to play a big role as well and towards the end of last season he wasn't spectacular. He'll have to win more than he loses.
Every game will be intraconference and have playoff implications. If the NHL does get their **** together and play a 40-48 game season, then we should be in for quite a treat.
And, as machinehead says, it definitely helps with the Rangers style of play. However, with all those games jam packed into a short schedule, it might be just as grueling as 82.
