Neither the original post, nor the post I quoted were about 5-on-5 play.

If we are only talking about 5-on-5, the Blues have sucked and have not shown their depth. Where they have shown their depth is their ability to throw out multiple killer powerplays. That's it, and if you're just tallying total scoring stats, it doesn't tell the story of their 5-on-5 play at all.
