The 2007-08 team was a contender because:
1) There were no injuries, except to Streit in the postseason at which point the power play died. Injuries returned with a vengeance in 2008-09.
2) Kovalev had a career year. There's a huge difference between an 84 point player and a 65 point player. The former can win several additional games for the team himself as well as make the rest of the lineup live an easier life through easier matchups.
