This is a point that is really overlooked IMO. Last season almost everything went right for the Rangers, just about everyone played out of their skins. Even with that, we only just finished ahead of a Pens team missing Crosby for a large chunk of the season and struggled to put anyone away in the playoffs.

This season the depth is gone and players have come back down to earth. the compete levels shown are disappointing, but overall the Rangers are about where they should be expected to be in the standings
Makes sense to me!
