The main difference is in the goaltending.

Last year, our team save% was .914, 9th best in hockey. This year, our team save% is .882, 2nd worst in hockey and worst in the Eastern Conference.
Sorry I was probably a little harsh in my wording, but I guess we just disagree. IMO, our defense was exponentially better last year and is at least equally as bad as the goaltending this year. I do not believe that if we had last years goaltending we would be in the same position as last year (ie leading the division). And if you dont think we would be leading our division if we had last years goaltending then you do agree, by definition, that the team isn't as good as last year.
