The caps have been spiraling downward as a franchise for a few years now. They're no surprise...they need to purge management before they get anywhere.

The flyers are a bit of a surprise, but i think it shows Schenn and Couturier are nowhere near as good as they were being hyped to be after last season. Not to mention Matt Carle is sorely missed on their blueline.
I think the Flyers are just a young team that needs time to gel. Schenn is actually having a great year compared to last year. Couturier is having an off year, but he still shuts down Malkin like a beast. And Carle is missed, but he's not the answer to their problems. I think they'd have a pretty similar record with him on the roster.
