I don't think so, it just seems that way on the outside. Zetterberg and Datsyuk outscored Toews and Kane last year. The difference is Sharp and Hossa > Filppula and Franzen. I think we can agree they have the flat out better D, especially top pairing.

2010 Chicago I think was a powerhouse. 2013 Chicago is more the definition of top heavy. Their bottom 6 is quite greasy and they have a low tier starter in goal. Their defense depends what form you get of Keith, but so far this season he's not been in any sort of Norris form, going -4 despite 5 wins. But like I said, it depends on what definition of powerhouse one has, it's really hard to have both the best top talent and depth with the cap. I personally think the Blues and Sharks are better.
