The problem is that humans freakin' suck at the "eye-test." Not only are we inherently biased, but we're extraordinarily responsive to suggestion, have selective memories, and are extremely outcome-dependent.

I'd argue that the principal differences between this year's Rangers and last year's is that Lundqvist has regressed to his mean and the Rangers aren't getting the bounces at the offensive end.
