Yes and that's what I said in my first post, the mid pack has been better in the West in the past few years.

But this year is bogus. Teams don't even play against the other conference. There is one dominant team and it's Chicago. Even if they don't play against Eastern opponents, their point streak is very impressive. But that's the only conclusion I can come up with. I believe its been pointed out in another thread that teams in the West currently go to overtime more often, so they pick up more loser points and therefore their teams may have more points than Eastern teams in the end. But that means nothing at all when comparing both conferences.
