I also think the short pre season made it difficult for some teams to work out rosters and chemistry. Pretty much had to throw the whole team to the wolves.

I think the other problem is that the shortened season really makes teams think they are still in the hunt-and other than maybe the SE where a small win streak could put you at the top of the division, most teams outside the playoffs will likely stay there (I am willing to bet that the Flyers don't make the playoffs this year even if there is a mathematical way for them to still make it).

East is pretty open this year. Pittsburgh is definitely talented on the offensive front (still think they are suspect defensively and can be exploited in a 7 game series) and I think Montreal and Leafs could also be dark horses this year and could steal a series or two.
