These numbers are all about what is sustainable versus short term success.

And Carbo's teams were the definition of short term success.

Ignoring shot differentials, I don't now how you can possibly look at 07-08 in retrospect and not see a team that was glaringly weak 5 on 5 beyond goaltending Plekanec and the Kostitsyn's really were the only ones scoring at a decent clip there, Koivu and Higgins were effectively scoring like 3rd liners outside the powerplay. This was simply a team that couldn't win without top level goaltending and top level special teams. Remove either and they would collapse.
