No. We don't have the high end elite scoring talent that other teams do. We match up well in net and our top d-men are fairly comparable, but we're a step below with Patches, Pleks and Ryder as our most dangerous forwards. In the current top eight seeds only the Senators are in a similar plight and I would also peg them as falling out in a full season.

Pens - Malkin, Crosby, Neal, Iginla
Boston - Bergeron, Seguin
Washington - Ovechkin, Backstrom
Toronto - Kessel, Lupul, Kadri
Ottawa - Spezza
Islanders - Tavares, Moulson
Rangers - Nash (and then a lot of second-tier in Richards, Callahan, Stepan, Clowe [same tier as our guys, but more])
