Other teams had lots of young guys playing during the lockout, look at the Oilers and the Wild, and they're still not doing as well as the Hawks. On the other side, I don't think a single one of the Ducks' players played during the lockout at all, and they're certainly not young, so what's up with them?

I'm really not understanding how you could make the case that this team is actually an overachieving 4-5 seed.
