DD, Cole, and Gionta are all underachieving. So was Patches until recently. That's a big chunk of our offensive core.

So I think it's some mix of "The Real Deal" and "Easy Schedule". Or, to put it more clearly, the Eastern Conference in general is simply very weak this year, allowing a flawed but mostly deep/solid Habs team to somehow be 1st in the Conference right now.
You cant call this an easy schedule when other teams in the East are playing the same teams in the East as we are.

And the East vs West is always debateable. The Canucks were supposed to beat Boston. The Kings were not supposed to beat any team from the East.

Game by game. That is how the Habs are approaching this and thankfully not fretting on why they are where they are.
